Patrick Schwarzenegger joins Amy Poehler's Netflix movie
Reports also suggest that final talks are on to get the The Mindy Project-fame Ike Barinholtz on board
Patrick Schwarzenegger has been roped in for Amy Poehler’s high school drama for Netflix, Moxie. The film will feature Hadley Robinson, who will next be seen in Greta Gerwig’s Litte Women, in the female lead role. Reports also suggest that the final talks are on to get the The Mindy Project-fame Ike Barinholtz on board.
Based on the book of the same name by Jennifer Mathieu, Moxie is the story of a girl from a small town who gets inspired by her mother’s Riot Grrrl (underground feminist punk movement) past and starts a feminist movement at her high school.
Moxie is Poehler’s second directorial after Wine Country, which was also backed by Netflix. Filming for the project has already begun in Los Angeles.
Apart from Moxie, Schwarzenegger will also be seen in an upcoming thriller directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer, titled Daniel Isn’t Real.
