Olivia Wilde gets her indie 'Fix'
How did Tao Ruspoli land Olivia Wilde, best known as Thirteen on House, for his debut feature film? Easy, they’re married. Ruspoli is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who stays close to reality with his first fictional project – the story is inspired by his brother’s struggle with drug addiction. Wilde and Ruspoli play a documentary filmmaking couple who must race across Los Angeles to get his brother Leo into a rehab program by 8 pm, or else the brother faces three years of jail. Shawn Andrews (Dazed and Confused) plays Leo, and Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI: Miami, 24) also co-stars.
Ruspoli said he’s always wanted to work with his wife: “We always joked that while we had gotten married after only knowing each other for 6 months, the real commitment (and risk) it takes to make a film together required 4 years.”
Fix opens tomorrow in New York, and EW has an exclusive clip after the jump.
