THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Matt Spicer is directing the dark comedy about a young woman who becomes obsessed with a social media star.
Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen will star in dark comedy Ingrid Goes West.
Directed by Matt Spicer from a script by Spicer and David Branson Smith, the film follows a young woman named Ingrid (Plaza) who becomes obsessed with a social media star named Taylor Sloane (Olsen) with a seemingly perfect life. When Ingrid decides to drop everything and move west to befriend Taylor, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.
Plaza will produce the pic along with Jared Ian Goldman, Star Thrower Entertainment’s Tim and Trevor White and Adam and Robert Mirels through their newly formed 141 Entertainment banner. Mary Solomon, Rick Rickertsen and Allan Mandelbaum will executive produce.
The film, which is Spicer’s feature directorial debut, is currently shooting in Los Angeles.
Plaza, known for playing April Ludgate on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, was most recently seen in Fox’s comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. She next will star in Noah Hawley’s FX series Legion, and she recently wrapped production on The Little Hours in which she stars alongside Alison Brie and Dave Franco. Plaza is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Schreck Rose.
Olsen was most recently seen in Disney and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and starred opposite Tom Hiddleston in I Saw the Light. Ingrid Goes West is her second collaboration with Star Thrower Entertainment following Taylor Sheridan’s Wind River, which The Weinstein Company will release. She is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
Spicer recently co-wrote the coming-of-age comedy Flower along with Max Winkler, who will also direct. Also along with Winkler, Spicer will write the recently announced Rocketeer sequel for Disney. He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Karl Austen.

ELLE – Last Saturday, a gang of very well dressed stars took in the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Liberty State Park, overlooking Manhattan. But before Elizabeth Olsen and co. grabbed the champagne that afternoon, they made an appearance on the red carpet and shared with ELLE.com their favorite fancy summer cocktails, along with their go-to treatments for any hangovers that come after. Consider your next summer night (and maaaybe morning) handled.
Go-to summer drink? “I love rosé.”
Any good hangover remedies? “I wish I did, because I hate a hangover, but I don’t. I just drink a lot of water, and I don’t go out. I don’t leave the house.”
HUFFINGTON POST – Scarlet Witch has so much power, it’d make Voldemort pee his pants. But with great power comes great responsibility, and actress Elizabeth Olsen takes that responsibility very seriously.
When The Huffington Post asked the “Captain America: Civil War“ star if she’d be into doing a Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff solo movie, the actress said she’d entertain the idea on one condition.
“It’s not something I’m opposed to, but it’s also something that has to make a lot of sense. I wouldn’t just do it just to do it. It’d have to make sense for how it advances in the world. But I’d be open to talking about it. I’d never say no to just an idea,” said Olsen.
A Scarlet Witch movie would be a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has been almost completely male-driven up to this point (even down to the toys). Perhaps giving hope to a solo movie, at the end of “Civil War,” Scarlet Witch’s future is fairly up in the air. Olsen said, “The options for Wanda afterward are pretty limitless,” but we may have a slight hint about what’s ahead.
In “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Tony Stark has a vision showing his fellow Avengers dead. This vision is given to him while Scarlet Witch is messing with his head. We asked “Avengers: Infinity War“ directors the Russo brothers if the vision could still come into play again, and they confirmed that everything was still on the table.
Is Stark’s vision a glimpse at the future? Will Scarlet Witch possibly be asked to recreate it?

Do you act differently when you’re a brunette? “I felt really exotic when I was brunette—I don’t know why I’m whispering. I got nervous! My humor works better as a brunette. But I wear mainly black, and I don’t want to look depressed.”
