Naomi Watts in Gypsy


Naomi Watts isn't afraid to try something new.

The two-time Academy Award nominee is set to star in the short-form series "Wolves and Villagers" for Quibi, Variety reports. The company's co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg has called it "Fatal Attraction 2.0," but plot details haven't been revealed. Stuart Blumberg is penning the project as well as executive producing alongside Jason Blum.

Watts is primarily known as a film star, but she has also starred in both traditional and web series. Her most recent show, 2017's "Gypsy," debuted on Netflix, and she also had a starring role in Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival. Additionally, Watts has joined HBO's upcoming "Game of Thrones" prequel and Showtime's limited series about the late Fox exec Roger Ailes.

Movies should continue to keep the actress busy as well. She most recently appeared in 2018's "Vice" and "Ophelia," and she currently has three films due out in 2019.

Quibi has not yet shared when "Wolves and Villagers" is expected to premiere.
