Shailene Woodley (Big Little Lies) will star in upcoming serial killer thriller Misanthrope.
Misanthrope follows a talented but troubled cop who is recruited by the FBI to help profile and track down a murderer. FilmNation Entertainment will be presenting the film to buyers at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Damián Szifron known for Wild Tales will direct.
Woodley had this to say about the project:
“Screenplays like ‘Misanthrope,’ that are this well executed both in theme and tone, are rare to come by with a director like Damian behind the wheel. I have complete trust we will create something that will have a profound impact on cinema and will resonate with audiences, especially given the times we are living in right now. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this team.”
Woodley produced and starred in 2018’s Adrift and returns to our TV screens in HBO’s Big Little Lies which returns for season two on June 9.
