LONDON (Hollywood Reporter) - Michelle Williams will star alongside Gael Garcia Bernal in Swedish director Lukas Moodysson’s first English-language movie, “Mammoth,” the film’s producer said Friday.

The story revolves around a successful New York couple played by Williams (“Brokeback Mountain”) and Garcia Bernal (“Babel”), their daughter and their Filipino nanny whose lives take a dramatic turn after the father goes on a business trip to the Philippines.

Moodysson’s project is scheduled to shoot on location in Thailand, the Philippines, Sweden and New York, beginning November 5. It is being produced by Moodysson’s longtime producer partner Lars Jonsson of Memfis Film.

A regular on the international big-name festival circuit, Moodysson’s previous films include “F—-ing Amal,” “Together” and “Lilya 4-ever.”
