Olivia Wilde will continue her directing career with the upcoming biopic on Olympic gymnast Kerri Strug. Wilde made her directorial debut last year with, Booksmart, and it was met with critical acclaim.
The biopic film, Perfect, is based off Kerri Strug’s autobiography Landing on my Feet, a Diary of Dreams. Strug became a household name at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta after landing a perfect vault on an injured ankle. She subsequently tore two ankle ligaments which pushed her out of the gymnastics individual events.
The script is currently being written by Ronnie Sandahl and produced by Riverstone Pictures and Pulse Films. No word yet on when production will begin so stay tuned!
Best script I’ve ever read. I worked hard to get this gig. This story is unreal. 🤯. I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to tell it my way. https://t.co/D5ANkLpLdA
