Hoo boy, we can hear the haters sharpening their knives on this one already, so let’s get right to it.
Variety reports that Rosemarie DeWitt, John Krasinski and Olivia Thirlby are in negotiations to star in “Nobody Walking.” The film will be directed by indie helmer Ry Russo-Young who made some minor waves with “You Won’t Miss Me” (which we really didn’t like) and was co-written by “Tiny Furniture” writer/director Lena Duman — who is another lightning rod of sorts for critics. The story is set in Los Angeles and takes place over a week and centers on a family that takes an artist into their home only to find she starts disrupting their lives. No word yet on who is playing what but we presume Thirlby will be the young artist in question.
We’re sure those who already have it in for this writing/directing pair will be ready to sink their teeth into this one from the cast to the premise — which is admittedly stereotypically “indie” — but we’ll wait to see how this takes shape. This one is moving fast with plans to get it before cameras at the end of May.
