Peter Craig is a 52-year-old screenwriter but in the last decade his career has really taken off. His career started off when he wrote the 2012 acclaimed film The Town and then co-wrote the two-part finale to the Hunger Games franchise. From there he wrote such films as the Mel Gibson-starring action film Blood Father and then co-wrote Bad Boys for Life. He recently has co-written two high profile films. The Batman (which he co-wrote with director Matt Reeves) and the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick. He is also writing Ridley Scott's upcoming (and very delayed) Gladiator sequel. Now, he's about to make his directorial debut and, go for irony, after writing the recent iteration of Catwoman, his lead star will be the first big screen iteration of her. The one and only Michelle Pfeiffer
Titled Wild Four O’Clocks, Pfeiffer will protray a larger-than-life grandmother who must learn to care for her two strong-willed grandsons after their father is sent to prison. The casting announcement comes ahead of the film's official launch on the Cannes Market before the 2022 festival begins on May 17th. Pfeiffer's casting is most likely a way to increase the film's value in finding a production company to fund and distribute the film.
Protagonist Pictures will handles international sales for the film that will be produced by Marc Platt (La La Land, Bridge of Spies) and Adam Siegel (Drive, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World). Stay tuned!
