Evan Rachel Wood and Gina Rodriguez are coming to the big screen once again, this time in a new heist movie written by queer filmmaker/artist/author Miranda July (Me and You and Everyone We Know, The Future).
The project is untitled so far, but will be produced by Annapurna (helmed by out lesbian Megan Ellison) and Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B Entertainment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is about “a woman named Old Dolio, whose life is turned upside down when her parents, amateur con artists, invite an outsider to join their biggest heist yet.” Evan Rachel Wood is set to play Old Dolio and Rodriguez will play the woman who discovers her family’s secrets. Richard Jenkins and Debra Winger will co-star as the parents.
Wood and Rodriguez both currently star in hit TV shows, Westworld and Jane The Virgin, respectively, so we look forward to seeing both bi+ women on the big screen once again.
Wood recently starred in Allure, a feature film following two women in an abusive relationship.
Rodriguez is eyeing some queer roles herself. Hot off her performance in Annihilation as the pugnacious soft butch Anya, the actress recently shot a guest star spot on Brooklyn Nine-Nine where she’s playing Stephanie Beatriz’s love interest. She also recently signed on to star in and produce a live-action Carmen Sandiego movie for Netflix.
Wood tweeted that she’s “beyond excited” for her new project with Rodriguez. I’d watch anything with either woman in itlet alone together.
