Olivia Thirlby Joins ‘The Darkest Hour’

Tuesday, April 6 by

Olivia Thirlby seems ready to break away from her moody indie roots. The star of The Wackness, Juno, and movies I rent accidentally on Netflix has just been cast in Chris Gorak’s The Dark Hour. In the film, she’ll play an American traveller in Moscow when aliens invade unexpectedly. Thirlby will fight for survival alongside other tourists in the sci-fi epic from the production designer turned director. Between all the random attacks and driving on the wrong side of the road, it doesn’t sound that much different than a trip to Detroit.

Filming will begin this summer in Moscow at producer Timur Bekmambetov‘s custom-built production facility where film shoots you. (THR)
