Olivia Thirlby has been set to star with Robert De Niro and Paul Dano in Another Bullshit Night In Suck City, the Nick Flynn memoir that has been adapted and will be directed by Paul Weitz for Focus Features. Expect a title change. The film is about an unconventional relationship that exists between a father and son while the latter (Dano) is employed as a caseworker at a Boston homeless shelter. Thirlby will play Denise, the love interest who helps get him the job at the shelter. Corduroy Films and Depth of Field will produce. Thirlby just wrapped Judge Dredd and The Darkest Hour, the latter of which will be released in August. She’s repped by Management 360 and 3 Arts.
