Aubrey Plaza (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,“Parks and Recreation”) will star opposite Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Martha Marcy May Marlene) in "Ingrid Goes West," directed by Matt Spicer and based on a script by Spicer and David Branson Smith. 

Plaza will produce the dark comedy along with Jared Ian Goldman (Jeff Nichols’ Loving, Little Boxes, The Skeleton Twins), Star Thrower Entertainment’s Tim and Trevor White and Adam and Robert Mirels through their newly formed 141 Entertainment. 

Mary Solomon, Rick Rickertsen and Allan Mandelbaum will executive produce. 

The film is currently shooting in Los Angeles.

"Ingrid Goes West" follows Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza) a mentally unstable young woman who becomes obsessed with Taylor Sloane (Olsen), a social media "influencer" with a seemingly-perfect life. 

When Ingrid decides to drop everything and move to the West Coast to befriend Taylor in real life, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.

Aubrey Plaza is best known for her role as April Ludgate in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”. She is currently starring in Twentieth Century Fox’s "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates" and will next star in Noah Hawley’s "Legion" on FX early next year. Additionally, Plaza recently wrapped production on "The Little Hours" in which she stars alongside Alison Brie and Dave Franco.

Olsen recently starred in Marvel Studios’ "Captain America: Civil War" and received critical acclaim for her performance in "I Saw the Light." "Ingrid Goes West" is her second collaboration with Star Thrower Entertainment following Taylor Sheridan’s "Wind River," which The Weinstein Company will release.

"Ingrid Goes West" marks Spicer’s feature directorial debut. He recently co-wrote Flower, along with Max Winkler who will also direct. The film is a twisted coming-of-age comedy starring Zoey Deutch, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn and Tim Heidecker, which Spicer will also produce alongside Rough House Pictures and Diablo Entertainment. Along with Winkler, Spicer will write the recently announced Rocketeer sequel for Disney. 

Plaza is represented by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams, and Olsen by The Gersh Agency and Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Spicer is represented by CAA, and Branson Smith by WME, LBI Entertainment, and Ginsburg Daniels.

Founded by Tim and Trevor White, Star Thrower Entertainment will World Premiere LBJ, directed by Rob Reiner and starring Woody Harrelson, at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Their upcoming slate includes Taylor Sheridan’s Wind River with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen set to be released by The Weinstein Company, and thriller The Good Neighbor starring James Caan, which Vertical Entertainment will release in September.
