Ellen Burstyn is set to make her directorial debut at the age of 84


Oscar-winning actress Ellen Burstyn is set to make her directorial debut at the age of 84 with the comedy Bathing Flo.

The film focuses on Danny, who’s offered the opportunity to house-sit in exchange for free rent. However, what he’s not told is that the exchange also includes Flo (to be played by Burstyn), an eccentric woman, forcing them to reluctantly agree to share the space — as well as, of course, life lessons.

The record of oldest director is still held by Takeo Kimura, who was 90 when Dreaming Awake premiered.

The script was written by Lauren Lake, who will also have a supporting role in the film, and based on a draft by Danny Brocklehurst and Danny Sherman.

Burstyn won the 1975 Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Alice Doesn’t Live Here. She has also had seven additional Golden Globe Award nominations, five Emmy Award nominations (two wins), and two more Academy Award for Best Actress nominations for her performances in the films Resurrection (1980) and Requiem for a Dream (2000).

The film will be produced and financed by QC Entertainment. Darko Entertainment’s Sean McKittrick and Movie Package Co.’s Ray Mansfield will produce with Sherman and Lake.
