Emmy Award-winner Amanda Seyfried is set to reunite again with her ‘Chloe’ (2009) director Atom Egoyan. Chloe was an erotic thriller, but this time, they will be reuniting for an emotional drama ‘Seven Veils’.
Amanda will be seen playing Jennie, a theater director who is tasked with reforming her former mentor’s most well-known work, the opera ‘Salome’, which is based on Oscar Wilde’s play. Jeanine knows that she has some big shoes to fill in putting her own spin on this classic masterpiece and as she begins her work, her old trauma resurfaces.
