Jessica Henwick has Monster Problems with Dylan O’Brien
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Iron Fist actress Jessica Henwick is set to join Dylan O’Brien in Paramount Players’ Monster Problems. Together, the pair will star opposite Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) and Arianna Greenblatt (Avengers: Infinity War).
Monster Problems will be directed by Michael Matthews with Shawn Levy set to produce through his 21 Laps banner. The project is said to be a coming-of-age story that will center around a road trip with a young man living in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters. The film is likened to both Mad Max and Zombieland with John Hughes overtones.
Along with Iron Fist, Henwick has starred in the TV series Game of Thrones, where she played Nymeria Sand, and has roles in the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong and the TV series Gods & Heroes.
The spec script for Monster Problems arrives from Brian Duffield who also wrote Jane Got a Gun. Levy jumped onboard the property way back in 2012, and the project has since lingered in Development Hell.
Matthews directed the South African Western thriller Five Fingers for Marseilles about the young ‘Five Fingers’ who fought for the rural town of Marseilles, against brutal police oppression twenty years ago.
