According to Deadline, Oscar winner Brie Larson, who is next up toplining Captain Marvel, is finalizing a deal to star I’m Thinking of Ending Things, the new film adapted and directed by Charlie Kaufman for Netflix.
Based on Iain Reid’s 2016 novel, the plot centers on Jake, who is on a road trip to meet his parents on their secluded farm with his girlfriend (Larson), who is thinking of ending things. When Jake makes an unexpected detour leaving her stranded, a twisted mix of palpable tension, psychological frailty and sheer terror ensues.
Kaufman is also producing with Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu. Reid will serve as co-producer.
