This post has been corrected, as detailed below. Jessica Chastain is currently on Broadway in "The Heiress," playing Catherine Sloper, a rich girl with boyfriend and daddy problems. Now Variety reports that she's been tapped to play another classic stage rich girl with those problems -- the title role in a film adaptation of August Strindberg's "Miss Julie," to be directed by Liv Ullmann. "The Heiress," Ruth and Augustus Goetz's 1947 play drawn from "Washington Square," Henry James' novel about the upper crust in mid-1800s Manhattan, is scheduled to end its limited run Feb. 9. "Miss Julie" might keep Chastain in the 19th century -- if Ullmann decides to maintain the original time frame.

March 22, 1989 | From Times wire services
Actress Liv Ullmann was reported resting comfortably today after an appendectomy at Massachusetts General Hospital. The Norwegian actress's publicist, John Springer, said in New York that Ullmann returned to her Boston home over the weekend, after finishing the film "Rose Garden" in West Germany. She had intense abdominal pain, and her husband, Donald Saunders, took her to the hospital, where she had surgery Tuesday. She is expected to return home in a few days.

Andrew Upton is staying on at the Sydney Theatre Company, assuming the position of sole artistic director starting in January. For the last four years, Upton and his wife, actress Cate Blanchett, have served as co-artistic directors of Australia's most prominent theater company. Upton's decision to continue leading the company has come as a surprise because he and Blanchett had announced their decision to both step down at the end of 2013. The couple was recently in New York for the company's staging of Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya," starring Richard Roxburgh, Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and Jacki Weaver.

Sweden's great director Ingmar Bergman has been a man of many muses, inspired by numerous illustrious actresses, but none lovelier, more talented or enduring than Liv Ullmann. In 1966, Ullmann made her first film with Bergman, "Persona," and the same year bore him a daughter, Linn, who is now an Oslo-based writer.

"They say that films are hard to come by when women are at a certain age," Liv Ullmann says, "But it doesn't seem so. I have a fantastic time." In her new film, "The Rose Garden," which opens Friday at the Goldwyn Westside Pavilion, Ullmann plays a German lawyer taking on the apparently hopeless case of a concentration camp survivor who has attacked and tried to kill an elderly man in the Hamburg airport.

I enjoyed Peter Rainer's passionate article and list of must-have DVDs ["129 'Best' Films: Rich, Risky and Enduring," April 17]. However, I do have one observation: While his list does ample justice to many of the great actors (some films being cited strictly for their performances), the same respect is not given to equivalent powerhouse actresses. Greta Garbo, Bette Davis, Ingrid Bergman, Anna Magnani, Meryl Streep, Irene Dunne, Jane Fonda, Va- nessa Redgrave, Liv Ullmann, Geraldine Page and Simone Signoret, among others, are all missing in action.

Adapted by physicist and popular science author Fritjof Capra and directed by his brother Bernt, this 1991 release is mainly an absorbing discourse on the world. The movie unfolds in the conversations between three people roaming the French isle of Mont. St. Michel. They are a vacationing Democratic senator (Sam Waterston), an expatriate poet (John Heard) and a physicist (Liv Ullmann, pictured) who has cut herself off from the world.

Swedish actor Erland Josephson, one of fabled director Ingmar Bergman's closest friends and collaborators, known for his portrayals of aloof intellectuals and often Bergman's alter ego in such celebrated films as "Scenes From a Marriage" and "Cries and Whispers," died at a Stockholm hospital Saturday. He was 88. His death from Parkinson's disease was announced by a spokeswoman for Sweden's Royal Dramatic Theater, which the actor headed from 1966 to 1975. Josephson was one of Bergman's favorite actors and longest-running collaborator, appearing in more than a dozen Bergman movies, including the director's first film in 1946 ("It Rains on Our Love")

As a socially conscious actress, Liv Ullmann has often chosen roles more from her heart than her head, with mixed results. However, for "Sofie" (at the Music Hall), her stunning directorial debut, she evokes the style and tradition of her mentor, Ingmar Bergman, for whom she gave her finest performances.
