Mia Wasikowska Joins David Cronenberg’s ‘Map to the Stars’

Olivia Williams and Evan Bird to co-star in the celebrity skewering ghost story

Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Evan Bird have joined the cast of David Cronenberg's upcoming thriller, "Maps to the Stars." 

Already signed to the project are Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson.

Wasikowska is best known for starring roles in "Jane Eyre" and "Alice in Wonderland," Williams has had key supporting roles in "Rushmore" and "The Ghost Writer," and Bird appeared on AMC's "The Killing."

Cronenberg's latest cerebral genre film is a ghost story that also skewers L.A.'s celebrity-obsessed culture. Bird will play a drug-addicted child star, Williams is his manipulative mother and Wasikowska his schizophrenic sister.

Cronenberg is looking to return to critics' favor after his most recent efforts "A Dangerous Method" and "Cosmopolis" got mixed reviews.

Production begins this July in Toronto and Los Angeles.
