With Daddio, Christy Hall, the writer and director of I’m Not Okay With This, will make her feature directorial debut.
Daisy Ridley was cast in the independent film Daddio four years ago, shortly after her Star Wars appearance. Dakota Johnson has since taken her position in the Sean Penn film.
Christy Hall (I’m Not Okay With This) will develop & direct Daddio, which will be her feature debut film. Johnson and Ro Donnelly will produce the picture under their TeaTime Pictures label, alongside Emma Tillinger Koskoff.
Dakota Johnson Replaced By Daisy Ridley
Johnson will play a young woman who arrives in New York, while Penn will play a taxi driver who strikes up an unanticipated discussion to his passenger that quickly shifts from amusing, basic exchanges to comical banter in order to find honesty about sensitive topics like love, loss, sex, and power dynamics within relationships.
Johnson recently featured in the drama Our Friend opposite Jason Segel and Casey Affleck, and she’ll soon be seen in St. Vincent’s The Nowhere Inn in a brief but entertaining part. Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut The Lost Daughter, as well as the film Am I OK?, in which she stars alongside Sonoya Mizuno, has been completed.
Johnson is presently starring alongside Henry Golding in Netflix’s version of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, and she is scheduled to feature opposite Cooper Raiff in the Shithouse filmmaker’s upcoming Cha Cha Real Smooth.
Penn just directed Flag Day, in which he co-stars with Dylan Penn, his real-life daughter. Penn is also working on a documentary on killed writer Jamal Khashoggi as a director, and he has a number of fascinating acting roles lined up. He’ll appear in Sam Esmail’s Watergate series Gaslit opposite Julia Roberts and Dan Stevens, and he’ll portray President Andrew Jackson in HBO’s short series American Lion.
