Disney’s Searchlight Pictures are filming a new movie with Makeready called “Not Okay”, and Variety has reported that Dylan O’Brien has joined the film’s cast. The film will be released on Hulu in the United States and as a Star Original on Disney+ internationally.
“Not Okay” follows a misguided young woman desperate for friends and fame, who fakes a trip to Paris to up her social media presence. When a terrifying incident takes place in the real world and becomes part of her imaginary trip, her white lie becomes a moral quandary that offers her all the attention she’s wanted.
Dylan O’Brien has previously starred in “Teen Wolf”, along with the “Maze Runner” films and most recently, “Love and Monsters“.
“Not Okay” will also star Zoey Deutch, Mia Isaac, Embeth Davidtz, Nadia Alexander, Tia Dionne Hodge, Negin Farsad, Karan Soni and Dash Perry. It is being written and directed by Quinn Shephard, who previously worked on “Blame”.
The film’s creative team includes casting director Jessica Kelly (“Pieces of a Woman”), production designer Jason Singleton (“False Positive”), director of photography Robby Baumgartner (“Blindspotting”), costume designer Sarah Laux (“Godfather of Harlem”), editor Mollie Goldstein (“All Together Now”), hairstylist Cynthia Vanis (“In the Heights”) and makeup artist Arielle Toelke (“The Drop”). Caroline Jaczko (“Bad Education”) will produce alongside Makeready.
