Riley Keough, Bob Odenkirk and Danny Ramirez will star in a live reading of the Oscar-nominated drama “Anatomy of a Fall,” as will Jay Ellis, Kate Berlant, Quincy Isaiah and Olivia Wilde.
Keough (“Daisy Jones & the Six”) takes on the lead role of Sandra, earning Sandra Hüller a Best Actress Oscar nomination at the upcoming Academy Awards.
In addition to the human cast, the film's dog, Messi, will reprise his role as Snoop.
The event, taking place February 14 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, is presented by Neon and Film Independent. Director Justine Triet will co-direct the film with The Black List's Franklin Leonard.
“My partner Arthur and I wrote this script together during our quarantine,” Triet said in a statement Saturday. “What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than with this caliber of talent exploring relationships, love and truth? We are very excited to collaborate with Film Independent.
In addition to best actress, the Oscar nominations for “Anatomy of a Fall” also include best original screenplay, best editing, best director and best picture.
The film won the Palme d'Or, two Golden Globe Awards – including Best Screenplay – and two Gotham Awards. “Anatomy of a Fall” has been highly recognized by more than 25 national critics groups, in addition to receiving nominations from the Producers Guild of America and the American Cinema Editors.
Past live readings at the Wallis include “Love Actually,” “Back to the Future,” “Jennifer’s Body” and “Triangle of Sadness.”
