Kate Bosworth Becomes A Lost Girl
Young Victoria director’s Tokyo project

08 December 2009  |  Written by Kat Brown  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Kate Bosworth is off to lose herself in a whirl of sex and drugs in Japan! But, disappointingly for the tabloids, this isn’t her Christmas schedule but rather Lost Girls and Love Hotels, an adaptation of Catherine Hanrahan’s 2006 novel to be helmed by The Young Victoria director Jean-Marc Vallee.

Bosworth plays Margaret, a Canadian woman who blots out her troubled past while working at an air stewardess training centre in Tokyo by day and playing fast and loose with sex and drugs by night. She takes interest in a missing Western girl and gradually gets pulled out of herself and into that mystery.

The screenplay is written by Nadia Conners, whose only previous project to date is sharing writing/directing duties on Leonardo Di Caprio’s eco pic The 11th Hour.

French-Canadian Vallee has form in getting edgy performances out of young leads, as evidenced in his 2005 coming-of-age story C.R.A.Z.Y., which is promising, and Lost Girls is one of a flurry of Westerner in Japan stories slowly following in Lost In Translation’s 2003 footsteps.
