Alexandra Daddario (“San Andreas,” “Baywatch”) has signed on to star in William Olsson’s dramatic thriller “I Am Not a Bird” for Wandering Trail Pictures and Blackbird.
Based on Catherine Hanrahan’s acclaimed debut novel “Lost Girls and Love Hotels,” which Hanrahan has adapted for the screen herself, Daddario plays a young western woman in the midst of losing herself in the bacchanal of nighttime Tokyo.
Haunted by memories of her twin brother’s descent into madness, she courts danger with her fellow ex-pat misfits in dive bars and love hotels. When she falls for Kazu, a handsome Japanese gangster, she has a chance at redemption but with the threat of a killer in the city, Margaret is in a race to find herself before she’s lost completely.
Lauren Mann and Lawrence Inglee will produce.
