Here is a Maggie Gyllenhaal's quote on the project from Variety.com:
“When I finished reading Elena Ferrante’s ‘The Lost Daughter,’ I felt that something secret and true had been said out loud. And I was both disturbed and comforted by that,” Gyllenhaal said in a statement. “I immediately thought how much more intense the experience would be in a movie theatre, with other people around. And I set to work on this adaptation. I find that the script has attracted other people interested in exploring these secret truths about motherhood, sexuality, femininity, desire. And I’m thrilled to continue my collaboration with such brave and exciting actors and filmmakers.”
Talia Kleinhendier, Osnat Handelsman-Keren, and Charlie Dorfman are producing the project along with Maggie Gyllenhaal. The screenplay will be written by none other than Maggie Gyllenhaal.
