Though the story of famous American poet Emily Dickinson has been told many times before, director Terence Davies hopes to bring a new perspective on the woman’s life in the biopic ‘A Quiet Passion‘ with the help of Cynthia Nixon. 

Terence Davies, the director of ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ and ‘The House of Mirth,’ just cast Cynthia Nixon in the lead role of his latest flick. What makes this combination even sweeter is the fact that Davies always had Nixon in mind for the main part, which he told The Hollywood Reporter:  “I wrote the screenplay with Cynthia in mind. It was the kind of dream casting you hope for. I never, for a moment, imagined my wishes would materialize. Cynthia has such a strong feeling for the work — and now she is our Emily Dickinson. I’m over the moon.”

Cynthia Nixon has appeared in a number of television shows throughout the years, her most notable character being Miranda in ‘Sex and the City.’ Davies is currently in the middle of post-production on ‘Sunset Song,’ which is a drama set in the early 1900s, based on Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s novel with the same name. But there’s no word on that film’s release as of this moment.
