Filed Scenes From A Marriage TV Series

First Look of “Scenes From a Marriage”

HBO has revealed first look footage at its highly anticipated “Scenes from a Marriage” remake, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain. Originally written and directed by Ingmar Bergman, the 1973 miniseries starred Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson as an affluent married couple whose marriage is charted across a decade, from disintegration to reconciliation and back again. The new limited series is co-created, written, and directed by Hagai Levi. The project marks a reunion for Chastain and Isaac, who led J.C. Chandor’s 2014 film “A Most Violent Year.”

Isaac last teamed with HBO on the limited series “Show Me a Hero” in 2015, which earned him a Golden Globe award. His upcoming projects include roles in Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” reboot and Paul Schrader’s “The Card Counter.”

Chastain, meanwhile, replaced Michelle Williams on the project, who reportedly dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. “Scenes From a Marriage” will mark the first notable TV appearance for two-time Oscar nominee Chastain since her early days. She will next be seen on film playing televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker for director Michael Showalter in Searchlight’s “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.”
