With his thriller “Dulles”, the Belgian director Olivier Masset-Depasse had a huge success in his home country in 2018 and won a record-breaking 9 Magritte Awards (the counterpart to the Belgian Oscar). No wonder that Hollywood became aware of this work and has now commissioned a remake.

Star cast has also already been taken care of: Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain will take on the leading roles, while Masset-Depasse will also be in the US Version with the obvious title “Mothers’ Instinct”.

Hathaway and Chastain will portray two housewives in the 1960s where their friendship gets tested after a certain accident. Distrust, feelings of guilt, and paranoia spread, and the two friends become bitter rivals who may also hurt each other seriously.

Hathaway and Chastain were mostly recently collaborated on Christopher Nolan’s hit movie “Interstellar” in 2014, reports. While some of the recent projects by Hathaway and Chastain were not totally successful, hopefully, this one will do good for both of them.
