After wrapping on TV series The Good Wife, in which she starred in the title role for almost eight years, the American actress looks to be stepping back into movies.

According to Deadline, Julianna is in final negotiations to join the cast of the Jon Avnet helmed adaptation of Milton Rokeach's 1964 book The Three Christs of Ypsilanti.

The actress will join a stellar cast including Richard Gere, The Hateful Eight/Justified actor Walton Goggins, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage and The West Wing's Bradley Whitford in the movie, which is set to begin shooting next month (Jul16).

Richard Gere will play a doctor in charge of three paranoid schizophrenic patients at the Ypsilanti State Hospital in Michigan, each of whom believe they are Jesus Christ.

Julianna, 50, will play the wife of Richard's character, who’s at home with two daughters after serving as his former research assistant and secretary.

The star won two Emmys and two SAG Awards for her role as Alicia Florrick in the CBS series The Good Wife, which aired its final episode last month (May16). She also won an Emmy for her role as Carol Hathaway on medical drama ER, appearing on the show’s first six seasons.
