Elizabeth Olsen and May December star Charles Melton will be teaming up to star in Todd Solondz’s next film, the darkly comic Love Child. The project will be launched for sales at this week’s European Film Market (EFM, February 15-21) by Rocket Science.

Producing Love Child are Cindy Bru of Volition Media, Christine Vachon of Killer Films, and David Hinojosa of 2AM. The film is fully financed by Volition Media and Gramercy Park Media. International sales at EFM will be handled by Rocket Science, while US rights will be co-represented by Cinetic Media and WME.

The story of Love Child centers around a woman trapped in a loveless marriage with only her 11-year-old son for comfort. When a charming stranger enters the picture, the son devises a plan to get rid of his father.

This upcoming film will see Vachon reunite with Solondz, who previously worked together on films such as Happiness in 1998 and Wiener Dog in 2016. Olsen recently starred in the HBO Max miniseries Love And Death, while Melton received critical acclaim for his role in Todd Haynes’ May December.

At the Marche du Film in 2021, Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell were previously attached to the project before Olsen and Melton took on the lead roles.
