Michael Cera to Make ‘Magic Magic’ with Juno Temple

Michael CeraMichael Cera has magic in his family. If memory serves, he’s got an uncle who is well-versed in the art of illusions. So Magic Magic seems like a viable choice for the newly moustached leading man. Cera’s Year One co-star Juno Temple is on board as the central character of what looks to be a haunting but quite interesting film, which has been picked up by Sony and will begin shooting this spring.

The Hollywood Reporter says Temple plays a young lady whose vacation through Chile is darkened when she gradually begins to lose grip with reality. Cera plays an American-born Chilean with whom she comes into contact during her travels and her slip into madness. Primarily a thriller, the movie embraces dark comedy and human drama to tell this unsettling story of a girl at war with her own mind.

Director Sebastian Silva, the prodigy behind The Maid, is working his whats-the-word with Magic Magic. Also cast are Emily Browning and Catalina Sandino Moreno.
