Olivia Wilde’s Wake Up (2020), starring Margaret Qualley and with cinematography by frequent Darren Aronofsky collaborator Matthew Libatique, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival over the coming days (trailer available from People magazine), according to IndieWire. Wilde and Qualley both had a breakthrough year in 2019, with Wilde directing Booksmart (2019) and Wilde appearing in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) as well as FX’s Fosse/Verdon (2019), and Libatique has been nominated for two Academy Awards. In Wake Up, Qualley plays Jane Doe, a woman forced to rediscover her humanity in an increasingly digital world.
