Michael Cera sets ‘Pilgrim’ follow-up

Indie thriller 'Magic Magic' up next for thesp

Exclusive: Michael Cera is set to star in the indie thriller “Magic, Magic,” a career left turn for the comedic thesp and his first project since “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.”

Pic revolves around a girl vacationing with her friends in a remote area of Chile who slowly starts losing her mental faculties. She tries to get her friends’ attention, but they ignore her until it’s too late.

Cera is better known for comedic roles in pics like “Superbad” and “Juno,” and on TV’s short-lived but critically loved “Arrested Development.” But coming off “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” which severely underperformed for Universal last summer, it’s clear the actor is interested in trying something different.

Sebastian Silva will write and direct with Mike White and Christine Vachom producing. The search is still underway for the female lead and until that person is found a production start date has yet to be set.

Cera is repped by ICM, Thruline Entertainment and Lichter Grossman Nichols Adler & Feldman.
