Ethan Hawke is set to direct his daughter Maya Hawke alongside Liam Neeson in “Wildcat”. They are set to begin production on the upcoming film in early January. The movie will center around American novelist Mary Flannery O’Connor.
This is not the first time that the father/daughter duo have teamed up on a production. Maya played Annie Brown on an episode of Ethan’s 2020 TV mini-series The Good Lord Bird. Ethan was both the star and creator of that show. Now that he is
Production is set to run from 10 January to 11 February with filming expected to take place in Louisville, KY.
Not too many people know who Flannery O’Connor (March 25, 1925 – August 3, 1964) is anymore but those who do embrace her as one of the finest American writers of the 20th century. O’Connor’s reputation stands on an impressive but severely limited body of work.
Over the course of her short life—O’Connor died at the age of 39— she produced 32 stories and two novels, all in what was called the Southern Gothic style. That all of it is first-rate is universally acknowledged by critics, with some stories and at least one novel being considered a masterpiece.
But O’Connor’s life was hardly adventurous and her greatest accomplishments were achieved by diligently writing and rewriting her texts, honing them into precise and often brutal depictions of genuinely upsetting forms of behavior.
