Actresses Kate Mara and Ellen Page will soon be seen as lovers in a new romance-drama titled Mercy to be directed by Israeli filmmaker Tali Shalom Ezer. The feature will see Page play Lucy, the daughter of a man on death row, who begins to fall for Mara’s character Mercy, a woman on the opposing side of her family’s political cause (via Variety).
Both Page and Mara will also produce, along with Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa for Killer Films, with Robert Halmi Jr and Jim Reeve to act as executive producers through Great Point Media, as well as Karri O’Reilly.
Page first revealed the then-untitled project in 2015 during a news conference at the Zurich Film Festival, where she stated that she would be focusing mostly on stories that are meaningful to her and “stories for women and supporting more gay characters”.
