USA TODAY just premiered the first sneak peek trailer for ‘The Circle’, in which Karen stars as Annie. The movie, also starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, is based on Dave Eggers’ best-selling novel and tells the story of a woman landing a job at a powerful tech company called the Circle, where she becomes involved with a mysterious man.
Breaking news: Karen is to be part of James Ponsoldt’s film adaptation of Dave Eggers’ The Circle, and joins the magazing casting of Tom Hanks, Emma Watson and John Boyega.
Karen has been cast as Annie, a warm, cute, goofy, old-money confident and fiercely intelligent member of The Circle, an Internet monopoly that links users’ personal emails, social media, banking and purchasing with their universal operating system. The result is one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency — which turns out not to always be a good thing.
