Nell Fisher joins Elijah Wood in ‘Bookworm’

Nell Fisher and actor Michael Smiley are set to join Elijah Wood in Bookworm, a new family adventure comedy from New Zealand director Ant Timpson.

Fisher will play Mildred, a 12-year-old girl whose life is turned upside down when her estranged, washed-up American magician father, Strawn Wise (Wood), comes to look after her. Hoping to bond with the tween, Strawn takes Mildred on an ill-advised camping trip into the rugged New Zealand wilderness in a quest to find the mythological beast known as the Canterbury Panther, named after the region on New Zealand’s South Island.

Nell also stars in Warner Bros.’ Evil Dead Rise, the fifth installment in the cult horror franchise, directed by Lee Cronin.
