"I'm thrilled to renew my connection to Amazon Studios," said Lonergan. “They've done amazing work wherever they've turned their attention; they did a perfect job with Manchester by the Sea, and it's a pleasure to be in business with them again.”

"Kenny is one of the finest directors and storytellers of our time," said Jason Ropell, vice president of Worldwide Motion Pictures, Amazon Studios. "Following our successful and memorable partnership on Manchester by the Sea, we are excited to further our relationship and continue supporting his visionary work."

Lonergan's upcoming projects include Howards End, a four-part limited series starring Hayley Atwell, and the play Lobby Hero starring Chris Evans, Michael Cera, Bel Powley and Brian Tyree Henry, set to premiere on Broadway in March at the Helen Hayes Theatre as a Second Stage Production.
