Evan Rachel Wood is in talks to star as the lead character, a female trucker named "RAINBEAUX" in the upcoming 18 WHEEL BUTTERFLY by Christian Divine. Divine's credits include the video game DEUS EX and various magazines such as Salon and Creative Screenwriting.
The film is described as a colorful road movie, in which an adorable gear-grindin' female trucker is accused of a crime that she did not commit and must outrace the law, brother truckers, feds and bounty hunters in the in the Texas bubble gum, redneck chic summer of 1977.
18 WHEEL BUTTERFLY will be produced by Aaron Magnani under his Water Bear/Aaron Magnani Productions Banner along with A Polish Brothers Construction. Magnani and producers are currently seeking financing. Magnani is also producing the Karyn Kusama-directed indie, THE RUT staring Chloe Grace Moretz, Ray Liotta and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
