Marvel’s Secret Invasion was a disappointment general, however considered one of its excessive factors was Olivia Colman—a performer who elevates all the pieces she’s forged in. The Oscar winner will staff up with one other equally charismatic star, Dev Patel, for a really unusual-sounding new romance film.
In line with the Hollywood Reporter, Wicker will star Colman as a fisherwoman, and Patel will play “her inanimate made-to-order husband” in what’s described as a “twisted romance” set to start filming in 2024. The script is tailored by administrators Alex Huston Fischer and Eleanor Wilson—their final movie was quirky sci-fi tale Save Yourselves—from a brief story, The Wicker Husband, written by Ursula Wills-Jones. (Clearly, The Wicker Man was off the desk for a title.)
Per the commerce: “Colman will play a smelly and ridiculed fisherwoman in a seaside village the place, fed up with small-minded neighbors, she commissions herself a husband to be made out of wicker, who’s performed by Patel. In an in any other case conservative city, their unconventional romance sparks outrage, jealousy and chaos.”
Wicker feels like an interesting mixture of weird and heartfelt, and the 2 leads are actually impressed casting. Will you be checking this one out when it arrives?
