Looks like Michael Cera has signed on to do the independent thriller MAGIC MAGIC with director Sebastian Silva which will be shooting in Chile. The film follows a young girl who is vacationing with her family but for some reason or another starts losing her marbles. As she realizes what’s happening to her, she tries to tell her friends and family who ignore her until it’s too late. We don’t know what role Michael Cera will play In this film, but we do know that, according to Miguel Arteta (who worked with Cera on YOUTH IN REVOLT),Mr. Cera has been putting some serious time into this role and spending around five hours a day learning Spanish. It appears that a female lead is not yet in place, but as soon as that’s completed production should start on this.
I think Michael Cera is great, although he has made a couple of bombs. I’ll be interested to see how he handles himself in a thriller. That’s just sounds odd- Michael Cera in a thriller.
