Olivia Wilde set to star in crime drama A Vigilante

We already know that Olivia Wilde (Rush) can kick ass on screen when she wants to. And she is set to get the chance to do it again, with news arriving via Deadline that she has joined Sarah Daggar Nickson's feature debut A Vigilante.

The director, who also wrote the script, is planning the story of The Woman, a secretive figure who helps victims of domestic abuse. And not by running a shelter or helping them move, but by quietly dispatching their attackers.

Wilde was sold on the script, announcing on Twitter that "it blew my f*g mind", which certainly bodes well for the drama that is to unspool. Nickson should be starting to shoot this coming February, backed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films.

Next up from Wilde is indie feature Black Dog, Red Dog, which adapts Stephen Dobyns' book focusing on his life from the 1950's to 1980's and switching from journalism to poetry. It will be made up of several short films directed by students taught by James Franco (As I Lay Dying). We are not entirely sure it will make it over here, but you never know.
