And the list of cast members in David Cronenberg’s upcoming Maps to the Stars has grown by three as Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, and newcomer Evan Bird have all signed on to the project.
Per Variety, Bird has been cast as a troubled, drug-addicted child star. Williams (pictured below; The Seventh Son, “Dollhouse,” The Sixth Sense) will play his manipulative mother, and Wasikowska (pictured right; Stoker, Alice in Wonderland, Only Lovers Left Alive) will portray his disfigured schizophrenic, fame-obsessed sister.
They join the previously announced Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, and Sarah Gadon. The screenplay is by Bruce Wagner (Wild Palms) and is a combo ghost story and critique of celebrity-obsessed society in Los Angeles.
Entertainment One Films and Martin Katz’s Prospero Pictures are producing with production starting in July in Toronto and Los Angeles. Sentient Entertainment’s Renee Tab, Cronenberg’s manager, will executive produce with Integral Films’ Alfred Hurmer co-producing.
eOne will directly distribute Maps to the Stars in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia/NZ and is launching foreign sales next week at Cannes.
