OSCAR Isaac and Michelle Williams are to star in and produce Scenes From a Marriage, a limited series adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s classic mini-series, for HBO.

Written and directed by Hagai Levi (co-creator of The Affair), the adaptation will re-examine the show’s iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple, played by Isaac and Williams.

Bergman wrote and directed the original 1973 Swedish mini-series, Scenes From A Marriage, which starred Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson.

Bergman’s teleplay, the story of a disintegration of a marriage, drew on his own experiences, including his relationship with Ullmann.

Isaac was most recently seen in the Star Wars closer, The Rise of Skywalker. He was also the star of HBO mini-series Show Me A Hero.

The actor will next be seen starring in the Dune reboot, an adaption of the best-selling novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. And he is also set to star in James Gray’s period drama Armageddon Time, alongside Robert De Niro, Donald Sutherland, Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett, as well as Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter, with Martin Scorsese executive producing.

Williams recently received an Emmy, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice and SAG award for her portrayal of Gwen Verdon in the FX limited series Fosse/Verdon alongside Sam Rockwell.

The four-time Oscar nominee also recently starred opposite Tom Hardy in the Marvel film Venom, which grossed more than $855 million worldwide at the global box office. She will next be seen reprising her role in the sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which is currently in post-production.
