Blackbird Adds Kate Mara and Treat Williams


New cast members have signed on for the newly-retitled Blackbird, Variety is reporting. Kate Mara and Treat Williams have joined the project and will play opposite previously-announced stars Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde.

The film (formerly titled Kin) sees Bana and Wilde as brother and sister and on the run from the law. Charlie Hunnman is set to appear as a recently released prison inmate that the siblings come across, with Hunnman’s character’s parents cast as Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek. Williams will play father to Mara’s character.

Written by Zach Dean, the film will be directed by The Counterfeiters‘ Stefan Ruzowitzky and should begin shooting in Montreal sometime next month.
