DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Up-and-comer Maya Hawke has been tapped to star as the title character in Charlotte XVI, an indie drama directed by Indie Spirit Award nominee Myna Joseph. Described as a frank portrayal of modern female sexuality, the pic follows the dazzling, destructive nature of desire and intimacy through the parallel love lives of a willful sixteen-year-old girl and her wayward mother.
Based on a screenplay by Joseph and John Magary, Charlotte XVI received support through the Sundance Screenwriters and Directors Labs. It is slated to begin shooting in the summer with Amy Lo producing under her banner Mental Pictures, which will premiere the Christina Choe-directed film, Nancy, a the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. Jessica Daniels will co-produce.
Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, recently debuted as Jo March in BBC’s three-part adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott classic Little Women. Repped by CAA and Untitled, she’s currently shooting the suspense indie Ladyworld, directed by Amanda Kramer.
VOGUE UK – Sunday mornings and teenagers do not, traditionally, mix well. But Maya Hawke isn’t – it quickly transpires as she arrives at a sun-filled studio in north London for her first Vogue shoot – the sort of 19-year-old to complain about an early start or to sit lethargically in the corner, silently observing the world behind lowered, disdainful eyelids. She wants to talk: about literature! Learning! Music! Acting! She has the excitement and boundless energy of a person who has left home for the first time and is getting her first taste of real independence, of responsibility.
