Last year, Hawke was spotted at Joe T. Garcia’s, a Fort Worth restaurant that is a celebrity hotspot.

In addition to Maya Hawke, “Wildcat” also stars Laura Linney, Rafael Casal, Philip Ettinger, Cooper Hoffman and Vincent D’ Onofrio.

Maya Hawke is the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, who made her acting debut in 2017. Some of her most notable roles can be seen in ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’, ‘Stranger Things’, ‘Fear Street’ . and “Maestro”.

“Wildcat” is Ethan Hawke’s fourth feature film to direct, following “Chelsea Walls,” “The Hottest State” and “Blaze.” He also remains one of the busiest actors in Hollywood.
