Olivia Williams is in talks to portray Eleanor Roosevelt in the Roger Michell-directed Hyde Park on the Hudson, which centers on the love affair between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his distant cousin Margaret Stuckley.

Bill Murray will portray Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the Focus Features project, and Laura Linney will play his distant cousin and mistress.

The Richard Nelson-scripted film takes place during a visit by King George VI to Hyde Park, the upstate New York home of the Roosevelt family in 1939. While the stakes are high, momentum was building toward WWII, the trip also happened as FDR's wife discovered his affair with his cousin.
