Catherine Hardwicke


Twilight filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke is in talks to direct the horror-thriller Wish Upon for Broad Green Pictures and Busted Shark Productions. Busted Shark’s Sherryl Clark, known for Cloverfield, is producing, after previously working with Hardwicke on the Blumhouse thriller Plush.


Written by Barbara Marshall , Wish Upon tells the story of a 16-year-old girl who finds a magic box that promises to grant her seven wishes, but with each wish comes dark and gruesome consequences.


Hardwicke is best known for directing the original Twilight film, which was huge, as well as the critical hit Thirteen. Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette star in her most recent film, Miss You Already.


Lauren McCarthy will oversee Wish Upon for Broad Green Pictures, whose Christopher Tricarico is negotiating the deal with Hardwicke’s reps — CAA, manager Dan Halsted and attorney Warren Dern of Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
