Olivia Munn and Justin Theroux are joining Violet!
Olivia Munn has signed on for the title role of Justine Bateman’s feature film directorial debut “Violet” with Justin Theroux and Anthony LaPaglia.
Bateman is producing and directing from her own script. “Violet” follows a rising film executive who lives according to the Voice (Theroux) in her head, until unexpectedly realizing the truth — it’s been lying about everything. LaPaglia portrays her boss, who dilutes her confidence in a way similar to the Voice.
Bateman will produce under her Section 5 banner, along with Mark G. Mathis (“Precious”). Cassian Elwes (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler”) is executive producing the project. Shooting is slated to begin in the spring in Los Angeles.
