I always think of you
Captain Marvel star Brie Larson is set to star in the new Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) Netflix film I’m Thinking of Ending Things. The film is based on Iain Reid’s 2016 novel, and the plot centers on Jake, “who is on a road trip to meet his parents on their secluded farm with his girlfriend (Larson), who is thinking of ending things.

It will be interesting to see how he implements his quirky style and humor into the film. Here’s a more detailed description of the story from the book: I’m thinking of ending things.

Brie Larson is jumping from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Netflix. The Captain Marvel actress has just joined the I’m Thinking of Ending Things cast for director Charlie Kaufman.

By Chuck Barney | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: October 25, 2018 at 11:06 am | UPDATED: October 25, 2018 at 11:14 am So that was weird. Wednesday’s episode of “Modern Family,” titled “Good Grief,” finally revealed the “significant” death that the show’s cast and producers had teased all season. But not only was it not that significant, the morbid plot twist only served to remind us that this once-great sitcom is running out of good ideas.
