Evan Rachel Wood, Gina Rodriguez to Star in Miranda July Heist Feature (Exclusive)
Richard Jenkins and Debra Winger are also set to star in the Annapurna feature.
Evan Rachel Wood, Gina Rodriguez, Richard Jenkins and Debra Winger are set to star in the yet-to-be titled heist feature from indie filmmaker Miranda July.
The project is the latest collaboration from Annapurna and Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment. Youree Henley (The Beguiled, 20th Century Women) will produce the feature, which is slated to begin production in May.
The script centers on a woman named Old Dolio, whose life is turned upside down when her parents — amateur con artists — invite an outsider to join their biggest heist yet. Wood will play Old Dolio, while Jenkins and Winger will portray the shady parents who are confronted by the mistakes of their poor parenting. Rodriguez will play the woman who learns of the family's secrets and is brought into the fold.
July, who is repped by UTA, is a prominent artist, author and essayist who is best known in Hollywood as the writer-director-star of 2005's You and Me and Everyone We Know, which won the Camera d'Or at Cannes and a Special Jury Prize at Sundance.
Wood is one of the stars of HBO's Westworld, the acclaimed sci-fi show whose second season begins next month. She is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
Rodriguez, who is repped by CAA and Jackoway Tyerman, can currently be seen starring opposite Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson in the sci-fi feature Annihilation. Earlier this week, the Jane the Virgin star signed on to play Carmen Sandiego in a live-action feature based on the popular 1990s animated character for Netflix.
Jenkins is coming off an Oscar nomination for his role in Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water. He is repped by Gersh and Bill Treusch.
Winger, who stars on the Netflix comedy The Ranch, is repped by Gersh, Framework and Schreck Rose.
