Being an attractive woman in Hollywood often means that you get typecast into playing the role of the "pretty girl" in your movies, making it difficult to move away from that and land some more exciting role. That has certainly been the case for actress Teresa Palmer over the years but it seems that she has found a way to land herself an exciting role, by writing it herself.
Teresa Palmer and her husband Mark Webber have written the screenplay for the upcoming movie The Ever After, with Mark directing the film, while they both star in the project. Mark has now opened up about The Ever After and what it was like to work with his wife on the project.
Webber told Collider, "So we wrote a movie about a married couple and we’re really married. So you get to see kind of like this fucked up love story with two people who are really with each other. So it lends a certain level of vulnerability and intimacy that you don’t see in this way very often. So yeah, I’m really excited about it."
He then praised the performance of Teresa in the film, "I think you get to see Teresa give a performance that she hasn’t done before. It’s been great. Making your own stuff is a really empowering act. Then for her also as a woman in this industry it’s like, you know, it’s kind of shitty. Up until that point she just played somebody’s girlfriend."
Teresa Palmer and Mark Webber managed to get a strong cast together for The Ever After which includes the likes of Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Phoebe Tonkin, Kid Cudi and Melissa Leo. The Ever After does not yet have a release date but it is expected that it will open later in the year or in 2015.
