Washington D.C. [USA], Aug 10 (ANI): Veteran actress Amy Morton is all set to make her directorial debut for a revival of David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning play 'Glengarry Glen Ross' with an all-female ensemble.

Based on the discussion on gender roles and male-female power imbalances, the drama will be given a bold new spin, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.

The 1983 drama depicted the cut throat fight for supremacy and survival of a group of aggressively competitive salesmen in a Chicago real estate office and the struggles to offload most worthless properties.

Featuring a handful of juicy roles, the hotshot broker sees his sales figures as evidence of his macho vitality. Also, a once-formidable veteran salesman who hasn't closed a deal in a long time now finds his livelihood in jeopardy.

James Foley's 1992 film adaptation starred Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Jonathan Pryce and Jude Ciccolella.

The actress-turned-director haa received Tony nominations for her performances in 'August: Osage County' of 2008 and for 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' in 2013.
