They voiced an unlikely husband and wife duo for The Lego Ninjago Movie and Olivia Munn and Justin Theroux are together again for a new movie, albeit in a very different combination. They'll star in Justine Bateman's full-length directorial debut Violet.

Munn is playing the title character, a rising film executive who lives her life according to what the Voice (Theroux) in her head advises. But she suddenly comes to realise that it has been leading her down some very wrong paths.

Anthony LaPaglia is also part of the cast, playing Violet's boss, a man who does little for her confidence. Having worked on some successful short films, Bateman is making the switch to feature-length movies with the comedy drama. She's looking to start shooting this one soon in Los Angeles.

Munn will show up in Ocean's 8(22 June) and The Predator, which lands on 13 September. Theroux has a few films on the way, including The Spy Who Dumped Me, out 10 August and Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On The Basis Of Sex.
