Olivia Wilde To Star In Emmett/Furla’s ‘A Vigilante’
EXCLUSIVE: Olivia Wilde will star in A Vigilante, a drama scripted and directed by Sarah Daggar Nickson that Emmett/Furla/Oasis has green lit for a February production start. Wilde (Drinking Buddies) plays The Woman, a secretive figure who rids victims of their domestic abusers. EFO’s Randall Emmett and George Furla are producing with Andrew D. Corkin of Uncorked productions and Lars Knudsen of Parts & Labor, and Ambyr Childers of Badlands Entertainment.
This marks the second collaboration between those producers, after Jan Kwiecinski’s The Incident. Wayne Marc Godfrey of The Fyzz Facility, Uncorked’s Bryan Reisberg, and Parts and Labor’s Jay Van Hoy will serve as executive producers. Tony Callie and Tim Sullivan will co-produce. WME repped Wilde, Nickson and Emmett/Furla, while Corkin and Knudsen are repped by André Des Rochers of Gray Krauss Stratford. Childers is repped by Luber Roklin Entertainment and UTA.
EFO has the Martin Scorsese-directed Silence coming December 23, Amityville: The Awakening coming January 6, and just wrapped the John Travolta-starrer Gotti from director Kevin Connolly.
Vinyl had a 20-year development history, with Scorsese and Jagger originally attempting to do it as a movie. When it was set up at HBO in 2010, Winter was brought in as a writer/executive producer.
The big-budget period drama drew soft ratings for its first season, with viewership between 760,000 and 570,000 for a premiere airing.
The series starred Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, a record label president who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path. Co-starring were Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger and Paul Ben-Victor.
I’ve added some photos of Olivia attending the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (May 2).
