“Bride” follows a woman created to be an ideal wife — the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur. When she rejects her creator, she’s forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. While on the run, she finds her true identity, her surprising power and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.
Johansson and Jonathan Lia will produce “Bride” through their company, These Pictures. Keenan Flynn will co-produce. Lauren Schuker Blum (“Orange Is the New Black”), Rebecca Angelo (“Wolfman”) and Lelio are on board to write the script.
Johansson earned Academy Award nominations this year for “Marriage Story” in the best actress category and “Jojo Rabbit” in the best supporting actress race. She also starred in “Avengers: Endgame.” Lelio won the Oscar
