Fresh off filming another season of ‘Big Little Lies‘ Shailene Woodley is set to star in ‘Misanthrope,’ an upcoming serial killer thriller.
Filming on the movie will reportedly start later this year in Atlanta. Damian Szifron will direct based on a screenplay he wrote with Jonathan Wakeman.
“The film will center on a talented but troubled cop who is recruited by the FBI to help profile and track down a murderer,” Variety reports.
Apparently, Woodley agreed to star in the movie after falling in love with the screenplay. She released the statement you see below…
Screenplays like ‘Misanthrope,’ that are this well executed both in theme and tone, are rare to come by with a director like Damian behind the wheel. I have complete trust we will create something that will have a profound impact on cinema and will resonate with audiences, especially given the times we are living in right now. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this team.
No word on who will star in this movie alongside Woodley, but the casting search is reportedly happening right now. We will keep you posted.[mashshare]
