We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together. Earlier this year it looked like the "Thirteen" star and director were going to reunite on "Plush," but alas, things don't seem to have worked out. But another capable star is looking to come off the bench and sub in.

We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together. Earlier this year it looked like the "Thirteen" star and director were going to reunite on "Plush," but alas, things don't seem to have worked out. But another capable star is looking to come off the bench and sub in.

Emily Browning is now looking to star in "Plush," a thriller set in Los Angeles. Co-written with Artie Nelson, the story will follow a psychic psychologist who sees the memories of his patients to help expel their past demons. But he meets his match when he crosses paths with Browning, who has the same power. O......kay. This was previously said to be an "erotic thriller" set in the music industry but unless the characters' psychic skills require everyone to be naked and singing, it seems that previous intel was erroneous. That, or those memories embedded in the brain are totally hawt.

The rights are up for grabs at Cannes, and we presume financing will need to come in before this rolls. But Hardwicke and Browning? Yeah, that pairing sounds solid to us, so let's see if this rolls. It's just one of a handful of projects Hardwicke has been attached to in the recent past, including franchise-spawning "The Maze Runner"; the troubled-teen tale "The Bitch Posse"; and "Knockout," a biopic of Swedish boxer Bo "Bosse" Högberg starring former partners Noomi and Bo Rapace. No word on the status of those pics, but we guess they're still brewing. [Variety]
