Olivia Wilde to Follow Up BOOKSMART with Kerri Strug Bio Pic

Alex Ritman at The Hollywood Reporter:

Hot on the heels of her Independent Spirit Award for best first feature, Booksmart director Olivia Wilde is heading to Berlin with a new film.

Produced by Riverstone Pictures and Pulse Films from a script by Ronnie Sandahl, Perfect is the extraordinary true story of gymnast Kerri Strug’s triumph against all odds to win Team USA’s first gold medal at the 1996 Olympics.

The movie will be based on Strug’s biography, Landing on My Feet: A Diary of Dreams.

The movie will be certainly less salacious than recent Olympian bio pics like I, Tonya, but after how damn good Booksmart was, I’ll watch whatever Wilde chooses to direct.
