‘The Wrath of Becky’ Interview: Lulu Wilson Says She Would Play The Murderous Teen “For The Rest Of My Damn Life”

In the heart of the 2020 pandemic, Becky was released. A frantic, bloody revenge story about a little girl going on a killing spree in retaliation for a group of men killing her family while on vacation, brought cinematic life into a time that greatly needed it. At the center of the film was then fourteen-year-old Lulu Wilson, who wore a fox hat while killing grown men in the most gnarly ways possible. 

This month Wilson will reprise her murderous role in The Wrath of Becky, this time with more careful planning. Now living on the lam from the foster care system with an older woman and her dog Diego, Becky bides her time working at a greasy diner. When a trio of misogynist white supremacists come into her job and aggressively hit on her and she retaliates, they follow her home. The next day, they are met with the realization that they messed with the wrong girl. 

I sat down with Wilson to talk about the evolution of Becky, being an executive producer at the age of 17, and how long she would like to play the bloody character.

The Wrath of Becky opens in theaters on May 26th.
