Rachel Brosnahan Boards ‘The Switch’ for Amblin Entertainment

Right now every time we hear of new casting we get excited. It just gives hope that everything will get back to normal soon, and we will have new things to watch and so much to look forward to.

Rachel Brosnahan – the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel herself – is set to star in “The Switch,” which is based on Beth O’Leary’s novel of the same name.

And hey – we’re always up for an adaptation. And we’re always up for a switch adaptation where they aren’t switching bodies. Sorry – like my shit a little more realistic.


The story, which is being adapted to screenplay by Bekka Bowling, “centers around a 29-year-old consultant, and her 79-year-old grandmother, who decide to swap lives (including cell phones) for two months, after a series of personal setbacks. The younger woman moves to a tiny Yorkshire village to tackle the responsibilities of dog walking and neighborhood watch and the older woman finds herself in a tiny London flat, navigating dating apps and starting up a social club for lonely Londoners.”

Not gonna lie – I am intrigued. I need to pick up the book. I need something to read. I am in a reading rut.

“I am thrilled to be partnering with Amblin to bring Beth O’Leary’s beautiful book to life.” Brosnahan said in a statement. “I was utterly charmed and deeply moved from the first page to the last and can’t wait to share Leena and Eileen’s story with everyone.”

The book is out in the U.K. now, but here in the states we have to wait until August.

The adaptation is set up at Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners.
