EXCLUSIVE: Hot off her memorable final episodes of Mad Men and her Tony Award-nominated performance in the Broadway revival of Wendy Wasserstein’s Pulitzer Prize play The Heidi Chronicles, Elisabeth Moss has landed roles in two upcoming films. She’ll first join Annette Bening, Corey Stoll and Saoirse Ronan in the Michael Mayer-directed film adaptation of Anton Chekov’s The Seagull from scribe Stephen Karam.

After that, Moss will join Boyd Holbrook in the indie The Free World, about a man trying to adjust to civilian life after being exonerated of a murder conviction and released from a long prison sentence.

Moss’s upcoming films include the Alex Ross Perry-directed Queen Of Earth, which premiered in Berlin and was acquired by IFC; the Reed Morano-directedMeadowland (which played Tribeca); the Ben Wheatley-directed High Rise; and the Cate Blanchett-Robert Redford Rathergate pic Truth. She is also attached to star opposite David Tennant in Robert Mullan’s Metanoia.
