Kristen Wiig joins ‘Hateship, Friendship’
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kristen Wiig, Guy Pearce, Hailee Steinfeld and Nick Nolte are starring in the indie dramedy Hateship, Friendship. Liza Johnson, who wrote and helmed the 2011 indie drama Return, is directing the pic, which has been flying under the radar and is due to start shooting next week in New Orleans. Based on Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, a book of short stories by Alice Munro, the project centers on a nanny (Wiig) hired to care for a rather wild teenage girl (Steinfeld). Using email, the girl orchestrates a romance between the nanny and the father (Pearce), a recovering addict living in a different town. Also in the mix is the girl’s grandfather (Nolte), who blames Pearce for the death of his daughter. Dylan Sellers and Cassian Elwes are producing. Mark Poirier wrote the script.
