Los Angeles: Actor Olivia Cooke will topline the upcoming comedy thriller "Pixie".
According to Deadline, the film will be directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Barnaby Thompson from a script by Preston Thompson. Cooke, best known for films such as "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" and "Ready Player One", will be joined by Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack and Alec Baldwin in the film.
The movie follows Pixie (Cooke), who wants to avenge her mother's death by masterminding a heist. But her plans go awry when she finds herself on the run with two men (Hardy and McCormack) who are way out of their depth being chased across the Wild Irish countryside by gangsters.
She has to pit her wits against everyone, taking on the patriarchy to claim the right to shape her life. Thompson will also produce the project alongside James Clayton. Peter Touche and Samantha Allwinton from Ingenious Media will serve as executive producers.
