Thomasin McKenzie To Play A Very Famous Gymnast in Olivia Wilde's Next Movie 'Perfect'

Thomasin McKenzie has been tapped to star in Olivia Wilde‘s next film.

According to Deadline, the 20-year-old Jojo Rabbit actress will star as gymnast Kerri Strug in Perfect.

The film is based on Kerri‘s book, “Landing on my Feet, a Diary of Dreams”, which centered the story behind her historic Olympic vault to secure America’s first ever gymnastics team gold.

If you don’t know, Kerri was declared a national hero after competing in her final vault at the 2006 Atlanta Olympics, where she sprained her ankle and tore two ligaments upon landing.

Olivia is set to direct the biopic, and executive produce, with a script by Ronnie Sandhal.

She’ll also be directing this highly anticipated movie, too!
