Evan Rachel Wood may star in trucker film 18 Wheel Butterfly
It seems like it’s been awhile since we’ve heard much about Evan Rachel Wood but she has several movies in the works like THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN, BAREFOOT and A CASE OF YOU and maybe 18 WHEEL BUTTERFLY. It’s been reported that Evan Rachel Wood is currently in talks to star in 18 WHEEL BUTTERFLY from director Michael Polish who was one half of the directing duo behind TWIN FALLS IDAHO and THE ASTRONAUT FARMER.
18 WHEEL BUTTERFLY follows a female trucker named Rainbeaux (Evan Rachel Wood) who has been “accussed of a crime that she did not commit and must outrace the law, brother truckers, feds and bounty hunters in the Texas bubble gum, redneck chic summer of 1977.” According to reports the film will be in the vein of SUGARLAND EXPRESS or SMOKEY & THE BANDIT. No word on when production would start, but we should know more in the next couple of weeks. (Deadline)
