Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams Join ‘Maps to the Stars’

Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Evan Bird have joined David Cronenberg’s upcoming thriller “Maps to the Stars.”

Entertainment One Films and Martin Katz’s Prospero Pictures are producing with production starting in July in Toronto and Los Angeles. eOne is launching foreign sales next week at Cannes.

Wasikowska, Williams and Bird join Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon.

Project is co-financed by eOne and Prospero Pictures and produced by Martin Katz with SBS Productions’ Said Ben Said. Sentient Entertainment’s Renee Tab, Cronenberg’s manager, will exec produce with eOne’s Benedict Carver, who will oversee for the studio. Integral Films’ Alfred Hurmer is co-producing.

eOne will directly distribute “Maps to the Stars” in the U.S., Canada, the UK and Australia/NZ.

Bird, a newcomer, has been cast as a troubled, drug-addicted child star. Williams will play his manipulative mother and Wasikowska will portray his disfigured, schizophrenic, fame-obsessed sister.

Cronenberg has been developing the pic since 2006. He is directing from a script by Bruce Wagner about a ghost story and an attack on the celebrity-obsessed society of Los Angeles.
