Haley Bennett just kind of… happened one day, so she’s now in a Terrence Malick film and gets cast in two promising features at once. Deadline informs us that the young actress will lead Mo Ogrodnik‘s Deep Powder — which has already cast Evil Dead‘s Shiloh Fernandez — and Ella Walks the Beach, from Myth of the American Sleepover helmer David Robert Mitchell.
The former of those still doesn’t have any kind of plot summary, though we have been told that Beach follows “a young woman who spends 24 hours traveling along an iconic California beach, testing the waters of suddenly being single.” Gerry goes to the shore? Adele Romanski will produce, while Benderspink does the same on that “executive” front; no start date has been made public.
Have you been keeping track of Bennett over the past few months? How does either project sound, taking her prior work into account?
