Michael Cera's grown up, getting serious, and headed to Chile for new film
Michael Cera, Hollywood's most adorkable teenager (and we promise, that is the only time we will ever use that word), is growing up.
His new film Magic Magic is a psychological thriller set in a remote part of Chile. The film also stars Emily Browning and Juno Temple, Temple playing "a girl vacationing with her friends in a remote area of Chile who slowly starts losing her mental faculties. She tries to get her friends' attention, but they ignore her until it's too late." It is directed by Sebastian Silva (The Maid) and features Cera speaking Spanish and wearing a fur coat.
The first images have been released (one of them above), and Sony has picked it up and reportedly plans to make the festival rounds with it. Cera has played the same awkward/adorable (see?) role over and over in Arrested Development, Superbad, Juno, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, the list goes on.
But, as Miguel Artera, director of Youth in Revolt, which starred Cera, Zach Galifinakis, and Portia Doubleday, Cera "follows his own heart," and his heart told him to go to Chile.
