Mackenzie Davis Set To Join Steve Carell In Jon Stewart’s ‘Irresistible’ | Film News
Mackenzie Davis, already set to lead the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate, has signed on for another enticing project. She’s in final negotiations to join Steve Carell in Jon Stewart‘s upcoming political satire, Irresistible.
The story reportedly follows a slick Democratic strategist who helps a retired veteran run for Mayor in a small, right-wing town, which also happens to be a swing state. Chris Cooper is already on board as the potential Mayor, while Rose Byrne will play Carell’s cutthroat Republican counterpart. Davis is set to play Cooper’s daughter.
Stewart is certainly putting together an impressive cast for his sophomore feature. Collider reports that Topher Grace is also poised to hop on board. Irresistible looks set to be a more commercial feature than his debut, Rosewater, which starred Gael Garcia Bernal as journalist Maziar Bahari, who was interrogated and tortured over 118 days in Iran.
Irresistible also looks to be perfectly timed with the upcoming 2020 presidential election. Stewart penned the screenplay and will produce alongside Brad Pitt‘s Plan B Entertainment. Focus Features will distribute the film.
Davis has appeared in big projects such as Blade Runner 2049, Tully, and The Martian over recent years. She also starred in AMC’s Halt And Catch Fire and the much-acclaimed Black Mirror episode, San Junipero. Her biggest role to date is still to come though: Terminator: Dark Fate hits cinemas Friday, November 1.
