Michelle Pfeiffer Is Set To Star In A New Drama Film From Batman's Screenwriter
Michelle Pfeiffer has been cast in Wild Four O'Clocks, a new drama picture directed by Peter Craig, who also co-wrote The Batman.
Michelle Pfeiffer has signed on to star in the film Wild Four O'Clocks, which will be released later this year. The 64-year-old actress is most recognized for her appearances in Scarface and Dangerous Liaisons, with The Fabulous Baker Boys garnering her a Golden Globe in 1989. Pfeiffer recently starred with Viola Davis and Gillian Anderson in the new Showtime anthology series The First Lady as Betty Ford. In 2023, she will return to the big screen in Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, reprising her role as Janet Van Dyne.
In a Variety report, Pfeiffer's recent casting in Wild Four O'Clocks was confirmed. The news comes before of the film's formal launch on the Cannes Market, which will take place on May 17th, 2022. Though nothing is known about Pfeiffer's Wild Four O'Clocks role, it is assumed that she would play a vivacious, larger-than-life grandma.
Peter Craig, best known for co-writing the script for The Batman and contributing to Top Gun: Maverick, will make his directorial debut with Wild Four O'Clocks. The 52-year-old is set to write the script for Ridley Scott's next Gladiator sequel. He is also known for his work on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. The new picture is produced by Marc Platt (La La Land, Bridge of Spies) and Adam Siegel (Drive, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World), with Protagonist Pictures handling foreign sales. Though further cast members have yet to be revealed, Wild Four O'Clocks is slated to be an emotional drama about an estranged grandmother (Pfeiffer) who must learn to care for her two strong-willed grandsons after their father is sent to jail.
