Breaking News in Yuba County: Tate Taylor Directs Oscar Winner Allison Janney and Oscar nominee Laura Dern in Dark Comedy

Oscar winner Allison Janney and multiple Oscar nominee Laura Dern star as sisters in director Tate Taylor’s dark comedy, Breaking News in Yuba County.

Taylor, whose credits include “The Help” and “The Girl on the Train,” will direct from the 2017 Black List script by Amanda Idoko.

He’s also producing, along with Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker via their Nine Stories banner (“Stronger”), Franklin Leonard’s The Black List, and John Norris (“The Help”).

AGC Studios, launched earlier this year by former IM Global CEO Stuart Ford, will fully finance “Breaking News in Yuba County.” The executive producers are Ford, AGC’s head of film Greg Shapiro, and Idoko.

The movie will go into production in mid-2019.
