Carice Van Houten Joins ‘I Am Not A Bird’; Mike Carlsen Boards ‘We Are Unsatisfied’; Danielle Burgess Cast In ‘Killer Kate!’
Game Of Throne actress Carice Van Houten has come aboard the indie thriller I Am Not A Bird, along with Andrew Rothney (The Huntsman: Winter’s War), Kate Easton (upcoming Ocean’s Eight ), Takehiro Hira and newcomer Elisabeth Larena. The bevy joins star Alexandra Daddario in the film, which has Swedish director William Olsson at the helm as production is underway in Tokyo, Japan. Based on the novel Lost Girls And Love Hotels by Catherine Hanrahan, who also adapted the screenplay, the story follows Margaret (Daddario), a young Western woman in the midst of losing herself in the bacchanal of nighttime Tokyo. Houten will play Ines, Margaret’s ally and fellow lost soul who has accepted that her youthful modeling and partying years in Tokyo are now behind her and seeks to go home. Lauren Mann of Wandering Trail Pictures and Blackbird’s Lawrence Inglee are producing the project. WME Global’s Alexis Garcia and Samantha Racanelli are handling the worldwide rights. Houten, who co-stars in Brian de Palma’s upcoming film Domino with Guy Pearce and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, is repped by ICM.
