Katie Holmes Writing, Directing & Starring In ‘Rare Objects’

Katie Holmes has signed on to be a triple threat on her next project; she will write, direct and star in Rare Objects, an adaptation of Kathleen Tessaro‘s novel of the same name. Phaedon Papadopoulos has co-written the script, and production has just begun in New York with Yale Productions and Holmes’ own Lafayette Pictures producing.

Rare Objects revolves around a young woman with a traumatic past who seeks to rebuild her life when she begins working at an antique store. She receives wisdom and guidance from the kind souls that own the shop, and begins to gain a new level of confidence, which is put to the test when figures from her past draw her back into their world and challenge her fragile stability.

Producers Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman said in a statement: “We’re thrilled to be producing this timely and timeless story with Katie. It’s a perfect example of the kind of film that we want to make under our Lafayette Pictures banner, and Katie is such an extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the camera.”

This is already the second project Lafayette and Yale have collaborated on with Holmes, as production recently concluded on Alone Together, a drama focusing on two strangers embroiled in bad relationships who wind up in the same upstate New York Airbnb. That also stars Holmes alongside Jim Sturgess, Derek Luke, and Melissa Leo.

Holmes has been out of the spotlight for some time, having not appeared in a big budget film since 2017’s Logan Lucky.

Her 2020 consisted of roles in drama The Secret: Dare To Dream, and horror sequel Brahms: The Boy II, but Alone Together and Rare Objects sound like interesting projects that will get audiences talking about her again.

Other films being developed by Yale Productions include Mayim Bialik‘s directorial debut As Sick As They Made Us and Banshee starring Antonio Banderas.
