In addition to Bill Murray as F.D.R., The Wrap is reporting that Laura Linney has signed on to play Margaret ‘Daisy’ Suckley. “Hyde Park on Hudson” is based on a play by Richard Nelson. It should be noted that the exact relationship between F.D.R. and Suckley is unknown, and that it may not have been anything more than intellectual, although there are reasons to think it may have been more. The play and movie will portray their relationship as a physically intimate one. Focus Features plans to shop the project at Cannes next week.
