Olivia Wilde is having a very busy week. Her latest film Tron Legacy opens in theaters nationwide today, and we’ve just gotten word that she’s landed a new acting gig. According to Variety, Wilde is in negotiations to star in the thriller Kin, alongside Eric Bana and “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam.
The premise of Kin centers on a desperate brother and sister (Bana and Wilde) who are on the run and “collide with the holiday homecoming of a troubled ex-boxer (Hunnam).” We’re pretty sure at some point during the film Wilde and Hunnam’s characters will hook up. It’s written in the stars. The screenplay was written Zach Dean and the film will be produced by Gary Levinsohn and Shelly Clippard.
Kin will be directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky who previously helmed The Counterfeiters. We’re actually interested in seeing this movie. Not because the plot is amazing but because we love Hunnam and we want to see him in more stuff on the big screen. Remember 10 years ago after “Undeclared” he was all the rage and then he just dropped off the face of the earth before resurfacing on “Sons of Anarchy?” Give him a chance Hollywood.
What do you think of the cast of Kin? Are you interested in seeing the film?
