Evan Rachel Wood to Reunite with THIRTEEN Director Catherine Hardwicke for Erotic L.A. Thriller PLUSH

     February 5, 2012

Catherine Hardwicke‘s career arc doesn’t make much sense to me.  Her directorial debut was the edgy teen drama Thirteen, followed by the likeminded skater tale Lords of Dogtown.  The first major detour came in 2006 with the chaste The Nativity Story.  Next she kicked off the Twilight Saga phenomenon, but instead of returning for the sequels, moved on to the panned Twilight knockoff Red Riding Hood.  To get back on track, Hardwicke may return to her roots.  THR reports that Hardwicke is attached to direct Plush, and her Thirteen star Evan Rachel Wood is attached to star.  The script that Hardwicke co-wrote with Artie Nelson is described as an erotic thriller set in the L.A. music world.

Honestly, I tune out when I hear the phrase “erotic thriller,” but reuniting with Wood is a smart move if Hardwicke wishes to reconnect with the critical community.  Knockout, a boxing drama starring Noomi and Ola Rapace, looks to be her next project.  It sounds promising, so perhaps the director is already on the path back to critical favor.  Hardwicke is also attached to direct The Maze Runner and The Bitch Posse .  Hit the jump for a recent video interview where Hardwicke mentions the project.

Here’s what Hardwicke said about Plush:

“I think I’m doing another cool movie with Evan [Rachel Wood] next, a really wild erotic thriller. Super sexy… It’s about a character that’s really pushing the edge, really pushing the envelope. That’s Evan’s character.”

The Plush talks starts at about 3:10.  Clip via Catherine Hardwicke Fans:

Interview Girl and I disagree about the magic inherent in the combination of “erotic” and “thriller.”
