Olivia Wilde has never shied away from voicing her opinion on political matters, and this upcoming election is no exception.

The actress and new mother is speaking out in support of Proposition 47, a California voter initiative which reduces penalty time for certain crimes.

“Family is everything. I’ve always felt that way, but having a baby this year really drove that truism home,” Wilde began.

“Being a mother has reinforced and refined my thinking on many issues, including—believe it or not—our criminal justice system. That’s why I’m supporting Proposition 47.”

Wilde gave birth to her first child with Jason Sudeikis, a baby boy named Otis, earlier this year. She and Sudeikis are engaged but have yet to tie the knot.

Wilde continued on about the initiative, saying that her family “instilled, since I was a child, a commitment to critical thinking. Don’t believe what you hear; explore and analyze what you encounter to determine your own truth. This family trait has led me to not only think deeply about societal issues but also to act. Having my son has only increased my desire to do so.”

She continued, “I also am one of several Artists for 47 endorsing the initiative, ranging from Jay‐Z to Brad Pitt to Cameron Diaz and John Legend. We’re united in this effort because our current justice system is tearing apart families for low‐level crimes, and draining community resources and tax coffers to pay for it. It hasn’t worked, and I urge Californians to join me on November 4 in voting yes on Prop. 47.”

‘Kill List’ and ‘Sightseers’ writer-director Ben Wheatley has selected the action thriller ‘Free Fire’ for his next feature, with production scheduled for spring 2015.

Featuring a cast that includes tar Luke Evans (‘Dracula Untold,’ ‘The Hobbit’), Cillian Murphy (‘Inception,’ ‘Peaky Blinders’), Armie Hammer (‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,’ ‘The Social Network’), Olivia Wilde (‘Rush,’ ‘Her’) and Wheatley’s regular collaborator Michael Smiley (‘Kill List,’ ‘A Field in England’), the actioner revolves around an arms deal which goes spectacularly wrong. Set in Boston in 1978, the film sees Wilde playing a woman who has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen (played by Murphy and Smiley) and a gang led by Evans and Hammer who are selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired in the handover, a heart-stopping game of survival ensues.

“The idea for ‘Free Fire’ came from my love of hard-boiled crime movies; from ‘The Asphalt Jungle,’ ‘The Big Sleep,’ ‘The Killing’ and ‘The Big Combo’ through ‘The Driver,’ ‘Le Samourai’ and ‘The French Connection,’ to the modern cycle of ‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Casino,’ ‘Hard Boiled’ and ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ said Wheatley in a statement.
“Free Fire will take you and stick you in the middle of the action. I want the film to have the stylish, no nonsense feel that you get in Peckinpah’s The Getaway. It’s a modern ‘70s movie. Muscular, tough and spare.”
Wheatley is currently in post production on his latest effort, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s ‘High-Rise,’ which stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Luke Evans.

Olivia Wilde had her big break thanks to roles on television shows such as The O.C. and House, but she credits The Gaiety School for honing her drama skills.

“I know it sounds funny but Colin Farrell was seriously like God to my whole class at the Gaiety…We had a photo of him in the in the studio and there were pictures of him all over the school.”

However, once she hit the big time in Hollywood, her own photo was then given pride of place in the acting school’s hall of fame.

“A girl came up to me in a coffee shop in New York and said ‘I was a student at the Gaiety School and we just loved you and had your photo on the wall and everyone dreams of having your career,’” she recalls. “That’s when I felt yes, that’s amazing because my time in Dublin, that’s really what got me to where I am today. I learned a huge amount from the Irish style of acting and it’s served me well.”

The 30-year-old actress was born Olivia Cockburn and spent her childhood summers at her Irish grandfather’s home in Ardmore, Co Waterford.

The mum-of-one is intent on making a movie based in the picturesque South East countryside, but has yet to find the right script.

“It’s so close to my heart…we spent summers on the beach in Waterford and riding horses near my grandfather’s house, I probably have such a romantic notion of Ireland but honestly my dream is to make a movie there.”

Gravitas Ventures has acquired all U.S. rights to Peter Glanz’s directorial debut “The Longest Week”, a comedy that stars Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Billy Crudup and Jenny Slate.

The film will be released theatrically and on VOD on September 5.

Glanz’s script is based on his short film “A Relationship in Four Days,” which played both Cannes and Sundance.

Bateman stars as Conrad Valmont, heir to a hotel fortune, who is cut off from his allowance following his parents abrupt divorce and tossed out into the unforgiving streets of the Upper West Side. Luckily, he is taken in by his old friend Dylan (Crudup), and returns the favor by immediately falling for Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Wilde). As Conrad attempts to woo Beatrice while keeping both their relationship and his bank balance secret, Dylan tries to set him up with Jocelyn (Slate). Committed to the charade that he eventually finds difficult to maintain, Conrad quickly realizes his charm can only extend so far into debt.

“‘The Longest Week’ and the performances of Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Billy Crudup offer a refreshing new perspective on a timeless love triangle. With the film, Peter Glanz follows in the great tradition of Woody Allen, Whit Stillman and Wes Anderson in incisively and hilariously portraying the challenges of falling in and out of love in Manhattan” remarked Gravitas Ventures founder/CEO Nolan Gallagher.

“Upon hearing Gravitas Ventures strategy for the film, we realized immediately that they are at the cutting edge of independent film distribution and would do a fantastic job with this film,” said YRF Entertainment CEO Uday Chopra.

YRF Entertainment (“Grace of Monaco”) financed “The Longest Week” and produced in association with Armian Pictures, Atlantic Pictures, and Far Hills. The film was produced by Uday Chopra and Neda Armian, and executive produced by Jonathan Reiman, Chris Marsh, Stone Douglass and Taylor Materne executive produced.
