Willem Dafoe and Camila Marrone will star in ‘Gonzo Girl’.

Patricia Arquette will make her directorial debut on the project and is also set to appear as an actress. The film is based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Cheryl Della Pietra and is being adapted for the big screen by Rebecca Thomas and Jessica Caldwell.

The story is set in 1992 and follows aspiring writer Alley Russo (Morrone) who has an exciting new job as an assistant to legendary “gonzo journalist” Walker Reade (Dafoe).

She receives orders to help the chaotic Reade settle in to work on his latest prose, but Alley soon learns that a life of drug addiction has eroded his writing ability.

Russo begins to turn Reade’s rants and raves into publishable work by running it through the filter of his own mind and his own typewriter to keep his career alive.

Patricia will play the role of Claudia – Walker Reade’s caretaker and manager for many years.

Willem has a number of acting projects on the horizon, including a role opposite Christoph Waltz in “Dead For a Dollar.”

The duo have been cast in the western helmed by legendary filmmaker Walter Hill as they step behind the camera on film for the first time in five years.

Willem also stars in the film “Poor Things” alongside Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo and Jerrod Carmichael.

Yorgos Lanthimos is directing the adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s novel of the same name which was influenced by Mary Shelley’s story “Frankenstein”.
