    I love Mara but I was hoping Wasikowska would stay with this – this could’ve been the film that finally gets her into major Oscar discussion thanks to Blanchett and Haynes’ track records.

    Supposedly there are more characters to be cast. Very interested in seeing the way this goes. Haynes has always been a favorite of mine ever since “Safe” in 1995.

    I have to say I’m quite pleased by this news. In everything I’ve seen Wasikowska in she’s had an adolescent quality to her. Mara comes across as maturer on screen and I think this will work better for the character.

    Can’t wait to hear more casting news! In the book there are three male characters who are around the same age as Therese (Wasikowska). I’d pick Daniel Radcliffe or Andrew Garfield for Therese’s on-off boyfriend. There is also Carol’s (Blanchett’s) husband, which is more of a background role, and her best friend. It’s this role that I’m most interested about because it could be made very vivid by great casting. I imagined Julianne Moore or Toni Collette in the part when reading the book.

    If the adaptation stays faithful to the book then there’s also a great opening sequence with a dowdy, middle-aged character. It made me think of Ingrid Bergman in Murder on the Orient Express and I can easily picture Imelda Staunton in the role.

    This project would’ve been much more interesting had Mia not dropped out. No way im giving my money to Rooney Mara. Ill just wait till this to comes to nextflix. As Hayes & Blanchett are very talented and i’d watch it there for them.

    I’ve always admired Todd Haynes’ work. He depicts women and familial relationships on camera in such a real and sublime way. I’m glad Mara got the job, but Mia in that role would’ve been really interesting.

    Apparently, filming got moved to Spring of 2014. If Weinstein doesn’t aim to work the Berlin/Cannes/Venice/Toronto circuit, then this will come out next year (Oct/Nov), otherwise it’s a 2015 campaign.

    Ditto. I’ve changed my opinion (marginally)  of Mia’s acting abilities, but I’ll take Mara. .

    Changed it to 2015, as this is very probably going the festival route.

    I’ve recently finished reading the novel, and I gotta say Blanchett and Mara are both very fitting, and Haynes is the perfect director for this.

    Recommend it.

    Does it have an official word as a 2015 release?
    It starts shooting from March.

    I also read the book. It’s a very delicate and understated story of two women.
    Cate suits Carol perfectly. And I am really curious how the script will turn out. It’s not easy to adapt this novel to be honest.

    Excited to see this film. Jake Gyllenhaal would make a great Therese’s boyfriend!

    @oliverhsu, no release date has been set. The film will probably go the festival route. Haynes films always go the festival route. I’ll be very surpised if they decide on a late Nov/Dec 2014 release date (which is the earliest it could go); that woudln’t be good for the film’s award chances/business.

    Updates in OP – Costume, production designer, and composer on board, along with actress playing character “Abby”.

    I would’ve liked seeing Wasikowska get a big part opposite Cate like this, but I gotta say I’m happy about Mara’s casting as she is excellent. In 2013 alone she delivered three varied but equally great perfs in ‘Side Effects’, ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’, and ‘Her’.
