Olivia Wilde to direct a thriller
Following May’s “Booksmart”, Olivia Wilde once again steps behind the camera with “Don’t Worry, Darling”. She will be once again joined by screenwriter Katie Silberman (who worked on “Booksmart”), along with co-producers Roy Lee (2017’s “It”), and Miri Yoon.
Described as a “Time’s Up-era psychological thriller,” the movie will follow a 1950s housewife who sees her world fall apart, revealing a troubling secret.
Silberman is reworking a first version of the script, written by brothers Shane and Carey Van Dyke (“Into the Dark”). No studio or production dates have been confirmed for the moment.
Wilde, who got her break playing Dr. Remy “Thirteen” Hadley in the series “House”, made her directorial debut with the coming-of-age comedy “Booksmart”, which has so far grossed $23 million worldwide.
As for her acting endeavors, the former “Thirteen” will be joining the cast of Clint Eastwood’s “The Ballad of Richard Jewell”, slated for release in 2020, acting opposite Jon Hamm, Sam Rockwell and Kathy Bates in the drama based on a true story. HM/JB
