Evan Rachel Wood Set to Work with George Clooney

From Vampire Queen to Seductive Political Intern

The talented Evan Rachel Wood left True Blood fans speechless with her impeccable interpretation of  Louisiana vampire Queen Sophie Anne. Evan Rachel has been growing more popular with every role she has taken and while True Blood fans want to see more of her in Bon Temps, they can’t help but admire her in the films she’s been in.

Recently it’s been announced that Evan Rachel will be starring in the Ides of March alongside Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, and Marisa Tomei. The star studded cast will be directed by none other than George Clooney. Shooting will begin in February in Michigan and Ohio.

The movie follows a young press spokesman who falls into backroom politics, treacherous manipulations and even seduction. Clooney not only will direct but will also play a presidential candidate running on the Democratic ticket. Evan Rachel Wood plays the seductive intern focused on ensnaring the press spokesman played by Ryan Gosling.

Clooney, along with Grant Heslov, adapted Ides of March from the Broadway play Farragut North and the film will be produced by Smoke House and Appian Way. With such a great production team, director and an amazing cast, this film is sure to bring home an Oscar or two.

While we love her work in True Blood, we must admit Evan Rachel Wood was made for film. She’s brought back the talent and beauty of old Hollywood; we can’t wait to see her in Ides of March. Bring home an Oscar, Evan!
