URGENT BREAKING NEWS: Juno Temple (Year One) and Olivia Thirlby (Juno) have been cast in Bradley Rust Gray’s teenage lesbian werewolf movie (please let this become a genre), Jack and Diane. Temple is replacing Alison Pill, who was replacing Ellen Page. Wow, they’re going through lesbians faster than a freshman LUG at Bryn Mawr. Too obscure? How about “faster than Jodie Foster at Yale”? Allegedly.
B-D provides a synopsis:
Jack (Thirlby) and Diane (Temple), two teenage girls, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane’s charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack’s tough skinned heart. But, when Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week she tries to push her away. Diane must struggle to keep their love alive while hiding the secret that her newly awakened sexual desire is giving her werewolf-like visions.
Have I mentioned how annoying I find it when independent movies give cute girls masculine names (oh, you’re so controversial) and name their movie after a popular song? On the other hand, teenage lesbian werewolves.
