Writer/producer/actress: Brit Marling is the kind of triple threat we like. She’s carved out her niche in Hollywood with a DIY attitude. Why wait for someone else to give you opportunities when you can create them yourself? She co-wrote “Sound of My Voice” with indie director Zal Batmanglij and “Another Earth” with Mike Cahill, and both landed in the festival circuit in 2011 and instantly launched her career. Offers came pouring in, including working alongside Tom Cruise in the big-budgeted sci-film film, “Oblivion.” It would have been a justifiable role to take; indie actress makes good and takes a paycheck as a reward to keep herself going. Instead, she turned down the role and has only made smart supporting choices in its place, including writing and starring in 2013’s eco-terrorist thriller “The East” with Batmanglij once again. Marling has proven, if you’ve got the ideas and the gumption, you can make your own backdoor into the movie business.

So what’s next? Well, there’s several projects she has brewing, a potential Danny Boyle-related mini-series, Mike Cahill’s next film, “The Keeping Room” with Hailee Steinfeld, a Terrence Malick-produced movie, etc., but she’s also working on her next writing gig. In a recent Esquire piece, the actor/writer revealed she is kicking around a BDSM project (bondage and discipline/sadism and masochism) called, “Boar.” Considering her works so far, we can probably safely assume it’s a world away from the fan-fiction milieu of “Fifty Shades Of Grey.” It evidently hopes to explore ideas “about sex and monogamy through a relationship between a vulnerable man and a dominatrix.” In fact, Marling even provided Esquire an excerpt from the script which you can read below and the scene does discuss the exact aforementioned ideas: secrets, basic human desires and the notions that monogamy and love might be outdated concepts. We’d pay to see this. Would you? The full script excerpt can be read over at Esquire.

    Really now!

    Another Earth and The East had good concepts, but that's where it ends. Her ideas are good but her writing is terrible.

    I like Brit Marling a lot, but that dialogue is lol-worthy

  • Bjorn | November 19, 2013 3:47 PM

    Tell me about it. I read the whole page of dialogue on Esquire and it only gets worse.

    Seriously.

    I'll see everything she's involved in... She's brilliant!

    I wonder if it was a male that wrote that same scene Marling wrote if it would be taken seriously or not. Women can feel sorry for other women and men too. But if a man feels sorry for other men I feel like the perspective changes, but why? What if a man wrote 50 shades of grey? Would it be as popular as it is now? The topic of BDSM is interesting but can it only be told through a women's perspective?

    "Another Earth," not "After Earth."

    Then they correct the mistake without acknowledging it.

    I don't understand why they don't have someone edit these things! It is constant.
