Jesse Plemons is in talks to co-star with Brie Larson in Charlie Kaufman’s “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” for Netflix, sources tell Variety.
Plemons will play Jake, a man going on a road trip to meet his parents on their secluded farm with his girlfriend (Larson), who is thinking of terminating their relationship. When Jake makes an unexpected detour leaving her stranded, a twisted mix of palpable tension, psychological frailty, and sheer terror ensues.
Kaufman is directing and adapting the script based on Ian Reid’s 2016 novel. He is also producing with Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu. Reid will serve as coproducer. (RTRS)
