Michael Cera is set to star in the indie thriller Magic, Magic. Despite fan love for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, it pretty much bombed at the box-office last summer. According to Variety, the film focuses on "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."
This role marks a departure for Cera, who is best known for roles in comedies like Superbad and Juno. I am interested to learn more about this project as news becomes available. The story sounds pretty interesting and it will be interesting to see Cera in a thriller. What are your thoughts on this casting news?
