Elizabeth Olsen will be seen soon in Silent House and has just joined the cast of another thriller. Variety reports that Olsen, Dane Dehaan, and Jack Huston are going to star opposite Daniel Radcliffe in Kill Your Darlings for Killer Films and Benaroya Pictures. The film tells the story of how "a murder at Columbia University in 1944 brought together the young writers who would spark the Beat Revolution." John Krokidas wrote and will make his feature film directorial debut on the film. Killer Films' Christine Vachon, Michael Benaroya of Benaroya Pictures and Rose Ganguzza of Rose Pictures are producing.
Olsen will play "Edie Parker, the wealthy art-student girlfriend of Jack Kerouac (Huston). Radcliffe will play Allen Ginsberg; Dehaan plays Lucien Carr, a classmate of Ginsberg's for whom he develops feelings." Production is slated to begin March 12 in New York at Columbia University.
Martha Marcy May Marlene was a Sundance hit last year, and Olsen will return to Park City this year with the paranormal drama Red Lights. She also has Liberal Arts and Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, which she will star opposite Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener. DeHaan stars in HBO series In Treatment and will be seen in Chronicle. Huston starred in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and HBO's Boardwalk Empire.
I have yet to see Martha Marcy May Marlene and am looking forward to seeing Silent House. Olsen holds more interest than her sisters for me. This sounds like a cool thriller that I plan on seeing as a fan of Radcliffe. What are your thoughts on this news?
