Lily Collins to Star in Survival Thriller ‘Titan’

In a pre-Cannes Film Festival signing, Lily Collins has come on board to star in the forest survival thriller “Titan.”

Austin Bunn, who wrote “Kill Your Darlings,” is attached to direct. Christine Vachon is producing with David Hinojosa for Killer Films.

XYZ Films is executive producing and will launch international sales at the Cannes Film Festival. CAA and UTA are handling the domestic rights.

Collins will portray a young musician on a quest to understand the life of her environmental activist sister, who was killed years earlier in a fall in a remote redwood tree grove. She asks an associate of her sister to take her to the same location, putting herself in peril.

Collins starred in eating disorder drama “To the Bone” and has been shooting the thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” about the 1979 murder trial of serial killer Ted Bundy. Zac Efron is starring in the role of Bundy opposite Collins, who is playing his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer. The story is told from the point of view of Kloepfer, who had no knowledge of the murders while she was with Bundy.

XYZ Films’ “Mandy,” starring Nicolas Cage and directed by Panos Cosmatos, will play in the Directors’ Fortnight section at Cannes.

Collins is repped by CAA, LBI, Definition Entertainment, and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern. Bunn is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content, and attorney Jeff Wertheimer. The news was first reported by Deadline.

Lily Collins to Co-Star Opposite Nicholas Hoult in Biopic ‘T...

Lily Collins is set to star opposite Nicholas Hoult in Fox Searchlight and Chernin Entertainment’s J.R.R. Tolkien biopic “Tolkien.”

Collins will play Edith Bratt, Tolkien’s great love, and eventual wife who inspired the elven princess characters in the Lord of the Rings” saga. Finnish director Dome Karukoski will helm the movie.

The film’s script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford focuses on the author as he finds friendship, love, and artistic inspiration among a group of classmates prior to the outbreak of World War I in 1914. He served in the British armed forces from 1916 to 1920, then wrote the three “Lord of the Rings” novels while working at Pembroke College. Tolkien died in 1973.

Fox Searchlight and Chernin Entertainment have been developing the project since 2013. Tolkien’s epic novels served as the basis for the film trilogies “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”

“The Hobbit” was first published in 1937. Tolkien then wrote “The Lord of the Rings” between 1937 and 1949 as what was initially intended to be a sequel, but the story became much larger — and ultimately one of the best-selling novels of all time with more than 150 million copies sold.

Collins is coming off the Sundance pic “To the Bone,” which earned her some of the reviews of her career. Netflix acquired the distribution rights for that film and recently released it this past July. She was also seen in the Netflix movie “Okja” and has a starring role on the Amazon drama series “The Last Tycoon.”

She is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment, and Definition Entertainment.

Lily Collins Joins Zac Efron in Ted Bundy Biopic ‘Extremely ...

Lily Collins will star opposite Zac Efron as the former girlfriend of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in the thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”

Voltage is handling sales at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The film is told from the point of view of Elizabeth Kloepfer during the multi-year period that Bundy hid his murder spree from his live-in lover, played by Collins.

Collins recently starred in “To the Bone” and “Okja,” and was also nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress (comedy) for her starring role in “Rules Don’t Apply.” She will star as Edith Bratt in Dome Karukoski’s “Tolkien.”

Efron came aboard the Voltage Pictures project at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Bundy was executed in 1989. Shortly before his execution, he confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

Joe Berlinger will direct “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.” The original screenplay, written by Michael Werwie, won the Nicholl Fellowship first prize and was featured on the Black List.

“Lily has very quickly distinguished herself as a major talent in a number of diverse roles in recent years,” said Berlinger. “I am really excited about taking Zac and this hugely talented actress to some dark but very human places they may not yet have explored.”

Efron was most recently seen in “Baywatch” and will be appearing in the upcoming James Franco comedy “The Disaster Artist.”

Voltage Pictures and Cota Entertainment are producing, alongside Michael Simkin and Jason Barrett of Efron’s Ninjas Runnin Wild. Ara Keshishian, Nicolas Chartier, and Michael Costigan will be producing via Voltage and Cota. Voltage is fully financing with Jonathan Deckter as an executive producer. Production is set to begin on Jan. 10
