Yvonne Strahovski has been cast opposite Blake Lively and Jason Clarke in All I See Is You, the psychological drama being directed by World War Z scribe Marc Forster. Production is now underway in Thailand on the indie, which tells the story of a blind woman (Lively) and her husband (Clarke) who upon restoration of her sight begins to discover previously unseen and disturbing details about themselves, their marriage and their lives. Strahovski will play Lively’s best friend.
Forster and Sean Conway wrote the script for the pic, which was a hot sales title at Cannes. Sierra/Affinity is selling abroad and WME Global is handling U.S. The film is being financed by SC International Pictures. Forster, Craig Baumgarten, Michael Selby and Jillian Kugler are producing, with Brian Wilkins, Ron Perlman and Renee Wolfe exec producing.
Stravhoski, whose recent TV credits include 24: Live Another Day and Dexter, is next up in ABC’s limited series The Astronaut’s Wives Club, which premieres June 18. She is repped by Paradigm and McKeon-Myones Entertainment.
ABC’s upcoming Astronaut Wives Club is staging a Chuck reunion.
Chuck alum Yvonne Strahovski has booked a series regular role on the drama from Fake Empire’s Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The 1960s-set drama tells the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history during the height of the space race. The drama marks the first pilot Savage has written since she co-created The CW’s long-running Gossip Girl with Schwartz. The project is based on Lily Koppel’s best-selling novel published last summer. Janice Williams brought the project to Groundswell. Odette Annable, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Dominique McElligott, Desmond Harrington and Bret Harrison star.
Strahovski, who is awaiting word on whether the 24 franchise will continue on, will play Rene Carpenter, who is married to Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter. A mother of four, she’s strong and upfront and enjoys the limelight but is and ready to use it for personal gain. She enjoys being center of attention and is the only one of the wives singled out for her own magazine cover.
Astronaut Wives, which was picked up straight to series with a 10-episode commitment, was originally intended to air in the summer. The drama was pushed back to midseason. Lone Scherfig will direct.
For Strahovski, the role marks her latest return to the small screen following NBC’s Chuck, which was created by Schwartz. Her credits include 24: Live Another Day and Showtime’s Dexter. She’s repped by Paradigm and McKeon-Myones.

Ever since wrapping her five-season run on Chuck, Yvonne Strahovski has been living another day and then some, with a variety of roles on screens (small and big) and stage. But now, she faces one of her greatest challenges — earning the trust of one Jack Bauer, on Fox’s 24: Live Another Day (Mondays at 8/7c).
With Hour 5 of the 12-episode series approaching, TVLine reconnected with the Aussie beauty to survey her busy past two years, reveal the surprising way a spy comedy prepared her for 24‘s break-neck pace and ponder a revisiting of Mr. and Mrs. Bartowski.
TVLINE | I must imagine that for an actor it can be a little scary transitioning from a long-term gig like Chuck into the great unknown. Have these past couple of years been more fulfilling than you could have expected?
I have to say I feel really blessed to have continued to have a pretty jam-packed schedule.
TVLINE | And there’s been such variety — Dexter, Broadway, you popped up on Louie and now this. You’re running the gamut.
You never know what to expect after finishing a long-term series. I was lucky that I got to do films in between seasons of Chuck. Coming out of it, one year I did a movie [I, Frankenstein], I did my Broadway debut [in the Tony-nominated Golden Boy] and then I joined Dexter. So I feel like I had my fingers in all three pies. That is the industry — theater, film and television — so it’s been really cool. Now to be part of 24, which has been so well-received…. When you bring back a show that was on for eight years and has been off the air for four, you don’t really know what to expect. It’s a vulnerable position to be in, and I think that all the producers felt the same way. But everyone’s overwhelmed by the response.
TVLINE | But not even playing a serial killer’s serial-killing girlfriend could have prepared you for the adrenaline-pumping nature of the beast that is 24.
Funnily enough, Chuck prepared me for 24. We shot relatively fast on Chuck — we had such a low budget, we couldn’t afford to spend a lot of time on scenes back then. So in a similar situation now, 24 runs very fast. It’s something that I’m used to, in a way.
TVLINE | I imagine some of the skills you picked up on Chuck — the running and jumping, the gunplay — came in handy as well.
Definitely. I mean, I didn’t feel like I needed to go into any kind of “boot camp” training or gun training with 24 because I do already have that up my sleeve. Even though guns still make me nervous. No matter how much experience I’ll have with guns on set, things can still happen and you’ve got to be very careful. Continue reading
