Elizabeth Olsen joins Daniel Radcliffe in Kill Your Darlings
After giving a career performance in MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, Elizabeth Olsen has her pick of high profile roles and can basically do whatever she wants as an encore. She has a few movies already slated to come out, including the thriller SILENT HOUSE and Josh Radnor’s LIBERAL ARTS, just to name a couple. After she finishes the films she’s already signed on to, the young actress will tackle KILL YOUR DARLINGS. The film revolves around the relationship between Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr and more specifically, the murder of David Kammerer, who was the lover of Lucien Carr. Olsen is set to play Jack Kerouac’s first wife, Edie Parker.
Along with Olsen, Harry Potter star Daniel Radlciffe will be playing Alan Ginsberg, Jack Huston (the grandson of the legendary John Huston) will be playing Jack Kerouac and Dane Dehaan (the upcoming CHRONICLE) will be playing Lucien Carr. Newbie director John Krokidas will be directing the film from a script by his former roommate, Austin Bunn. No word yet on a production start date.
