Toni Collette, David Thewlis and Jessie Buckley are all set to star in Oscar-winner Charlie Kaufman’s new Netflix psychological thriller, titled I’m Thinking of Ending Things. Netflix took to its Twitter handle to announce the news.

The film is based on author Ian Reid’s novel of the same name that came out in2016. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind writer Kaufman will be writing, directing and producing the project.

Anthony Bregman (under Likely Story), Bob Salerno and Stefanie Azpiazu will be producing the film while Reid will serve as a co-producer.

The streamer’s synopsis of I’m Thinking of Ending Things reveals: "On a road trip to meet his parents on their secluded farm, Jake’s girlfriend is thinking of ending things. When Jake makes an unexpected detour, leaving her stranded, a twisted mix of palpable tension, psychological frailty, and sheer terror ensues."

The three actors are said to join the previously cast Jesse Plemons who will be playing Jake, the lead character while Buckley will star as hid girlfriend.

Collette was last seen in Netflix’s Velvet Buzzsaw alongside Jake Gyllenhaal.
