Jessica Chastain is set to star in the title role of "Miss Julie" in Liv Ullmann's film adaptation of August Strindberg's classic play about a young upper-class woman who finds herself attracted to a senior servant. Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton are attached to co-star.

Chastain has already had a big start to 2013: she's Oscar-nominated for her role in Kathryn Bigelow's controversial "Zero Dark Thirty" and recently commanded the two top box office spots with that film and horror title "Mama." She is also currently on Broadway in "The Heiress."

In the pipeline for Farrell are FilmDistrict's "Dead Man Down," Warner Bros.' "A Winter's Tale" and Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks."

Ullmann, best known as Ingmar Bergman's muse in films such as "Persona," "Cries and Whispers" and mini-series "Scenes From a Marriage," has directed before, albeit not in a decade. "Miss Julie" will be her fourth feature film at the helm. In 2009, she directed Cate Blanchett and Joel Edgerton on stage in "A Streetcar Named Desire."

The director-actress can be seen currently on the fest circuit in documentary "Liv & Ingmar," in which Ullmann talks about her relationship with Bergman (1918-2007), with whom she has a daughter.
