Movies Productions // Riley Keough Network

With all the press she’s doing as the star of Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience, Riley Keough won’t be catching Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown to Off the Wall, though Jackson was briefly her stepfather when he was married to her mother, Lisa Marie Presley. “I have no plans to see any movies. I’m struggling to find time to sleep,” says Keough.

Still, there’s at least one person at the festival who would enjoy meeting Keough: director Kevin Macdonald, who is directing a biopic about the actess’ grandfather, Elvis Presley, Fox 2000’s Last Train to Memphis.

“I should cast her as her grandmother,” jokes Macdonald, who was in Sundance with his documentary Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang. “Or Priscilla Presley.”

For Keough, playing her grandmother would be “really bizarre.”

“I find it weird playing people that are alive in general, so playing your grandma would be very weird,” she says. “I don’t think it would be something I’d enjoy. It would make me extremely uncomfortable. But to quote Justin Bieber, ‘Never say never.'”

It’s Woman Crush Wednesday, and we talked to Riley Keough about Dixieland and The Girlfriend Experience, the bullshit myth of “I woke up like this,” and finding love on Fury Road.

In her just-budding film career, Riley Keough has often been found ambling around in a wasteland. She has plodded through the post-apocalyptic desert of Fury Road, traipsed through a seedy Florida strip club in Magic Mike, and wandered a downtrodden Mississippi trailer park in Dixieland. (Fun state fact, Mississippi is the home of Keough’s kinda-famous grandfather, Elvis Presley.)

In her next project, Keough has been permitted to move to the healthy American metropolis of Chicago for The Girlfriend Experience, Soderbergh’s translation of his movie to a Starz series. Keough talked to GQ about details of The Girlfriend Experience, bullshit, and dancing.

A24 has acquired U.S. rights to Andrea Arnold’s coming-of-age drama “American Honey,” starring Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf and Riley Keough.

Parts & Labor, Pulse Films and ManDown Pictures are the producers. The project was co-developed by Film 4 and jointly financed by Maven Pictures’ new film fund, BFI and Film 4.

A24 is planning a release in the second half of 2016. Protagonist Pictures is handling the film’s international sales.

“American Honey” centers on a gang of law-breaking teenagers who are chasing the American Dream, selling magazine subscriptions by day, partying by night. The story is told through the eyes of Lane’s character, a new recruit to the group who falls into a relationship with one of its leaders.

Arnold shot the entire film on location in the Midwest. The movie will feature a soundtrack that will include E-40, Kevin Gates, Fetty Wap and Bruce Springsteen.

Parts and Labor producer Lars Knudsen said, “We spent over a year street-casting for the cast, clocked over 12,000 miles on the road to capture the film as Andrea imagined it, and we’re thrilled to end the journey with our friends at A24. The resulting story shows what Andrea does best – authentic, personal filmmaking.”

Arnold’s credits include “Wuthering Heights,” “Red Road” and “Fish Tank.”

CAA negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
