Taika Waititi just continues to spread his wings even more. The actor-director just doesn't seem to catch a breath when it comes to bagging projects one after the other, and we are certainly not complaining. Still basking in the applause that he has received for Jojo Rabbit, the man is also scheduled to direct Thor 4 soon.
And now, he will be associated with yet another project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Waititi is executive producing Night Raiders, Danis Goulet's female-driven dystopian drama now shooting in and around Toronto. In the film, children are the property of the state and a desperate Cree woman joins an underground band of vigilantes to infiltrate a state children’s academy to get her daughter back. Goulet's feature directorial debut is being produced by Tara Woodbury, Paul Barkin, Ainsley Gardiner, Georgina Condor and Chelsea Winstanley.
Waititi is backing the Canada-New Zealand co-production that stars Amanda Plummer, Elle-Maija Tailfeathers, Alex Tarrant, Brooklyn Letexier-Hart and Shaun Sipos. The indigenous sci-fi thriller portrays a military occupation that controls disenfranchised cities in post-war North America.
