Brie Larson to Star in ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’ by Iain Reid

‘Brie Larson, who is next up toplining Captain Marvel, is finalizing a deal to star I’m Thinking of Ending Things, the new film adapted and directed by Charlie Kaufman for Netflix.

Simon & Schuster

Based on Iain Reid’s 2016 novel, the plot centers on Jake, who is on a road trip to meet his parents on their secluded farm with his girlfriend (Larson), who is thinking of ending things. When Jake makes an unexpected detour leaving her stranded, a twisted mix of palpable tension, psychological frailty and sheer terror ensues.

Kaufman is also producing with Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu. Reid will serve as co-producer.

In addition to Captain Marvel, Larson, who won the Best Actress Oscar for Room in 2016, stars opposite Michael B. Jordan in Just Mercy, a drama at Warner Bros that reunites her with her Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton.

Captain Marvel, the linchpin of Marvel’s 2.0 cinematic universe, hits theaters March 8, 2019 — the latest trailer is dropping tonight during ESPN’s Monday Night Football. It follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Larson) as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.

Larson is repped by WME and Authentic Talent & Literary Management.’
