Your eyes do not deceive you: Two actors from The Descendants — the film’s main romantic pairing, too — are both starring in films titled White [Animal]. And, just as Shailene Woodley is likely to take a darker slant with the new Gregg Araki picture, THR says her onscreen boyfriend, Nick Krause, is also going in a dark (not to mention fantastical) direction on White Rabbit.
Joining him will be Sam Trammell (True Blood), both of whom will star for director Tim McCann — semi-fun, completely useless fact: he teaches at my college — in the film, a story of one troubled boy’s (Krause) overbearing “visions of a rabbit that he killed when he was nine years old.” Things only get worse when, along with “other imaginary characters,” the rabbit begins “pushing him over the edge and luring him into one last fatal act of revenge.” (The senior thespian will be seen as his father.) Anthony Di Pietro has written the screenplay, which Burning Sky Films and SSS Entertainment will start shooting this month.
There’s not much else to add, other than “I like what’s been presented thus far.” While Krause gave one of the more interesting performances in Alexander Payne‘s film — funny, honest, and really kind of heartbreaking — this sounds like a whole different ballgame, role-wise, and that shift will be plenty fascinating to see play out onscreen. Better yet? He’s not branching out with some franchise tentpole.
