Close to return to hit theatre role for new movie
Glenn Close will reprise her stage role in The Singular Life Of Albert Nobbs in a new movie, which she has adapted for the big screen.
The actress played Nobbs in the costume drama in 1982 and won an Obie Award for her brief off-Broadway stage stint.
Filmmaker Rodrigo Garcia will direct the project, which is set to start shooting in July (10). Close will also produce the film.
The plot revolves around a 19th Century Irish woman who disguises herself as a man in order to make a success of her life.
