Catherine Hardwicke Picks Plush
Evan Rachel Wood may star...
It’s been a few years since Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood worked together on Thirteen, which established both on the Hollywood scene. Now it appears they might be teaming back up again for the erotic thriller Plush.
Hardwicke co-wrote the script with Artie and plans to direct. As for Wood, she’s attached to star, but we don’t exactly know what she’ll be playing as the only details that backers IM Global have released are that it’s a thriller set in the LA music world.
The company is about to start shopping the project around the European Film Market next week, hoping to drum up enough cash to get it made. If it does go into production, it’ll see Hardwicke and Wood back on similar territory to Thirteen, which featured unflinching portraits of teenage drug use and sex. From the sounds of it, Plush will feature slightly more grown up characters, but still with lots of emotional manipulation.
Hardwicke last brought the world Red Riding Hood, and has since been developing a few projects, including novel adaptation Maximum Ride and boxing biopic Knockout.
Wood, meanwhile, was last seen in The Ides Of March and TV miniseries Mildred Pierce.
