Treat Williams Is Doing A Thing!
Williams' onscreen daughter will be played by Kate Mara, who has appeared in Iron Man 2, happythankyoumoreplease, and most notably, 127 Hours along with Williams, though they shared no scenes. She also has a role in the promising comedy Peep World, which will be released this spring.
Blackbird is directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky, who won the 2008 Best Foreign Language Picture Oscar for The Counterfeiters. It will start shooting next month in Canada and is anticipated to get a Sundance release around February of next year.
Is it possible that Treat Williams' father character could defeat the criminals and become the star of countless Blackbird sequels and spinoffs, establishing Treat as Hollywood's most bankable actor, as I've always felt he is?
