We haven’t seen much of Evan Rachel Wood since The Ides Of March in 2011, but she’s got The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman coming up, as well as Barefoot and A Case Of You. Now Variety reports that Wood is now in talks to star in 18 Wheel Butterfly, an indie road movie which is set to be directed by Michael Polish (Twin Fall Idaho).
Written by Christian Divine and described as a mix between Thelma and Louise and Smokey and the Bandit, the story is set in 1977 and follows Rainbeaux (Wood), a trucker on the run from the police, bounty hunters, and her fellow truck drivers after she is set up for a crime she didn’t commit.
Aaron Magnani is producing the project and currently seeking financing. There is currently no date for the start of production.
