THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ star joins Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming road trip drama set around the last shop in the U.S. to develop Kodachrome film.
Elizabeth Olsen is set to star in Kodachrome, appearing alongside Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming drama.
The actress had been previously linked to the project before Cannes, where The Solution Entertainment Group launched it in the market (CAA are repping North America), but her name was subsequently removed.
Set to start shooting in Toronto on Aug. 28, Kodachrome tells the story of a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them. Bruce Greenwood, Dennis Haysbert and Wendy Crewson will also star in the film, to be directed by Mark Raso (Copenhagen) from a script by Jonathan Tropper. Tropper previously adapted his novel This is Where I Leave You with Warner Brothers, which starred Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll and Rose Byrne.
Kodachrome is being produced by Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson and 21 Laps Entertainment’s Dan Levine and Shawn Levy, alongside Topper and Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, which is fully financing the film. Jo Monk, Laure Vaysse and Dan Cohen are exec producing.
The film joins a growing list of films on the slate of Motion Picture Capital, which only this week announced Steel Country, a U.S.-set thriller to star Andrew Scott (Spectre, Pride) and recent Olivier best actress winner Denise Gough (’71, Jimmy’s Hall), which went into production Friday. Simon Fellows (Malice in Wonderland) directs, while Gareth Ellis-Unwin (The King’s Speech) produces alongside Clarance.
Other films on MPC’s upcoming slate include U.K. drama Hampstead, starring Diane Keaton and Brendon Gleeson, currently in post-production, and sci-fi film The Titan, starring Sam Worthington, Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson, also in post.
Meanwhile, MPC’s completed projects include horror film The Crucifixion, written by The Conjuring’s Chad and Cary Hayes and starring Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Secret Service); thriller Come and Find Me, starring Aaron Paul and Annabelle Wallis; and comedy The Boy Downstairs, starring Girls’ Zosia Mamet.
MPC, which was also behind Netflix series Sense8, was set up by Clarance in 2011 with the backing of Indian giant Reliance Big Entertainment, and claims to have arranged financing for productions totaling $200 million to date.

E! ONLINE – Black Widow and The Hulk aren’t the only heroes who found love in a hopeless place.
Although many of the Avengers grow apart in Captain America: Civil War, two of them manage to grow closer: Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). E! News has an exclusive first look at a bonus feature from the Marvel movie (available on Digital HD Sept. 2 and Blu-ray Sept. 13), in which the stars explain how their characters’ relationship was almost predestined.
“What I love about Vision, he’s sort of on his own quest, which is to understand human beings,” Bettany says of his character, who was accidentally brought to life via an Infinity Stone in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. “He realizes that loyalty has got to come through love—real loyalty—so I think that he’s very intrigued by what love is.”

|Ingrid Goes West, News • By AliKat • 0 Comments|
NERDIST – Fans of social media and dark comedies can rejoice. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Parks and Recreation alum Aubrey Plaza and the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s own Elizabeth Olsen will play opposite each other in Ingrid Goes West, a new ‘net-themed dark comedy shooting in Los Angeles.
Details on the production are still pretty light, but we do know a basic storyline. Plaza will play Ingrid, a young woman on the verge of obsession with a social media starlet played by Olsen. Ingrid’s obsession reaches a whole new level when she packs up her life and moves to Los Angeles to befriend Olsen’s Taylor Sloane, the young woman with a seemingly perfect life. As with all dark comedies, Ingrid’s arrival on the West Coast sparks a series of events that lead the young women down increasingly disturbing and dangerous paths.
Plaza will produce the film, which was written by Matt Spicer and David Branson Smith. Spicer will make the project his feature film directorial debut.
The movie does not yet have a release date, but the timing of a story steeped in social media stardom could not come at a more opportune moment, as stars of YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and more occupy an increasingly high profile in the public eye. They influence national and international conversations, and drive millions of eyes towards the products and events they love. Could any moment be more primed for a stark and comedic look at what happens when fan obsession goes too far?
Olsen and Plaza have proven track records of excellent comedic timing and solid acting chops so this movie-goer eagerly awaits more details and a release date to look forward to in the coming months.
