Naomi Watts To Star In Thriller, ‘The Wolf Hour’ | Film News
After Netflix’s cancellation of Gypsy, Naomi Watts is being forced to find other projects. In timely fashion, she’s found The Wolf Hour, a psychological thriller set during New York’s 1977 blackout riots.
Rising filmmaker Alistair Banks Griffin is writing and directing the project; his feature film debut, Two Gates of Sleep, screened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and competed for the Camera D’Or.
Watts will play June Leigh, “a cultural icon and activist during the ’60s who has since fallen from grace and is a shell of her former self, now facing her demons at the height of one of the darkest points in the city’s history“. Watts will also help produce the film.
In addition to Gypsy, Watts also enjoyed a good run in the Twin Peaks revival, and will star in the upcoming Ophelia adaptation.
