It’s not that we don’t love her as Sookie Stackhouse, but we always want the best for our favorite True Blood actors, so we love when we hear about Anna Paquin branching out into other roles!
Anna has three films in production: Free Ride, Black Wings Has My Angel, and Straight A’s.
Free Ride, written and directed by Shana Sosin, is a drama about a single mom in the 1970s who has to provide for her two girls while she’s mired in the Florida drug trade. Easy A’s Cam Gigandet and The Sopranos’ Drea de Matteo co-star. In addition to playing a role on-screen, Anna is also a producer on the project. It’s currently in post-production.
Black Wings Has My Angel, written and directed by Alfonso Pineda Ulloa, is a crime thriller about an ex-con who’s enlisted a Mississippi call girl to help him with an armored car robbery. Lord of the Rings’s Elijah Wood and The Avengers’ Tom Hiddleston co-star.
And Straight A’s, written by David Cole and directed by James Cox, is a comedic drama about a drug addict being prompted by his mother’s ghost to return to his family.
These projects all sound pretty enticing, but if they don’t pan out, Anna always has a certain HBO show on which to fall back!
