Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood is all set to reunite with Christina Ricci, 25 years after they first starred together in Ang Lee's 1997 critical acclaimed drama The Ice Storm.
Elijah Wood reunites with Christina Ricci after 25 years in Showtime’s breakout hit Yellowjackets season 2
According to Entertainment Weekly, Showtime announced Friday that the actor will join the upcoming second season of Emmy nominated drama Yellowjackets in a season long guest-starring role as a man named Walter, whose arc will intertwine with Misty (Ricci) in significant ways. Little concrete details are known about Wood's character, other than a brief network synopsis that promises he is "a dedicated Citizen Detective who will challenge Misty in ways she won't see coming."
The news comes after it was announced that Lauren Ambrose and Simone Kessell have joined the cast as series regulars as the adult versions of Van and Lottie. Meanwhile, Liv Hewson and Courtney Eaton, who play the teen versions of those characters, have been upped from recurring in Season 1. Production on Yellowjackets season 2 is said to begin later this month in Vancouver with premiere date yet to be announced.
Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, Yellowjackets follows a high school soccer team after a plane crash as they survive in the wilderness 25 years later. The present-day timeline also stars Juliette Lewis, and Tawny Cypress. Season 1 also starred Ella Purnell, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Nélisse, Steven Krueger, and Warren Kole.
On the front, Elijah Wood’s recent film credits include No Man of God and Come to Daddy.
