THR is reporting that Mia Wasikowska has been cast in Gus Van Sant’s “Restless”. The actress had previously been contemplating a part in Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator” before going with “Restless”. We still don’t know much about the film except it will tell a “complex tale of a teenage boy and girl who share a preoccupation with mortality”. We also know that the film will be produced by Bryce Dallas Howard and will be written by one of her film school classmates, Jason Lew, who wrote the play that the film will be based on. You may know Wasikowska from her critically acclaimed performance on HBO’s “In Treatment”, but I’m sure she will be huge next year once Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” opens as she’s playing Alice. Wasikowska can also next be seen in “Amelia” later this month.
