'Ingrid Goes West' To Star Aubrey Plaza And Elizabeth Olsen

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen will star in dark comedy Ingrid Goes West.

Directed by Matt Spicer from a script by Spicer and David Branson Smith, the film follows a young woman named Ingrid (Plaza) who becomes obsessed with a social media star named Taylor Sloane (Olsen) with a seemingly perfect life. When Ingrid decides to drop everything and move west to befriend Taylor, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.

Plaza will produce the pic along with Jared Ian Goldman, Star Thrower Entertainment's Tim and Trevor White and Adam and Robert Mirels through their newly formed 141 Entertainment banner. Mary Solomon, Rick Rickertsen and Allan Mandelbaum will executive produce.

The film, which is Spicer's feature directorial debut, is currently shooting in Los Angeles.
