‘Alice, Darling’: Anna Kendrick And Wunmi Mosaku To Star In Psychological Thriller About A Girls Trip Gone Wrong

A girls trip goes all wrong for Anna Kendrick in Alice, Darling, a new femme psychological thriller she’ll be starring in for Lionsgate. This marks her return to the studio after scoring one of her biggest hits with 2018’s dark comedy A Simple Plan.

Deadline reports Alice, Darling will mark the directorial debut of Mary Nighy, and stars Kendrick as a deranged woman who goes on a trip with her two best friends, only to have dark secrets emerge when a local girl goes missing and her mercurial boyfriend shows up unannounced.

The cast includes Loki star Wunmi Mosaku and Kaniehtiio Horn as Alice’s besties, and Charlie Carrick as Alice’s boyfriend.

A female-led production team includes a script by Alanna Francis.

“Alice, Darling is a subtle, nuanced story about coercion and control,” said Nighy. “As a director, I couldn’t wish for a better cast of talented actors and creatives to bring this important story to life. The chemistry between Anna Kendrick, Wunmi Mosaku, and Kaniehtiio Horn as the three friends is a joy to see.”

Kendrick is coming off the recent Netflix thriller, Stowaway. She also scored one of the early pandemic success stories with her voice role in Trolls World Tour.
