News Image
Significant Productions have started production on their next feature film, Passing, in New York.

In addition, Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies) joins previously announced cast members Tessa Thompson (Avengers: Endgame), Ruth Negga (Loving) and André Holland (Moonlight).

Passing marks Rebecca Hall's directorial debut and is based on a screenplay that Hall adapted from the novel of the same name by Nella Larsen. It tells the story of two African-American women, each of whom can "pass" as white but choose to live on opposite sides of the colour line in 1928 Harlem.

Nina Yang Bongiovi & Forest Whitaker (Significant Productions), Margot Hand (Picture Films), and Rebecca Hall (Flat Five Productions) are producing, alongside support from Film4, AUM Creative, XRM Media, Gamechanger Films, TGCK Partners and Sweet Tomato Films. Endeavor Content is handling worldwide sales.

Skarsgård is repped by CAA and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush & Kaller. Significant Productions is repped by WME and Cohen & Gardner LLP and Flat Five Productions by WME, Julian Belfrage Associates, and attorney Gretchen Rush.
