Casting Round-Up Ladies Edition with Brie Larson and Rose Byrne
Here's another installment of Casting Round-Up Ladies Edition. This time we have Brie Larson and Rose Byrne up to the plate. I enjoy doing the "ladies edition" of Casting Round-Up because it allows me to find photos of these lovely ladies. Can we also discuss how perfect Rose Byrne is?
Speaking of Byrne, this lovely lady has landed a role opposite Melissa McCarthy in SUSAN COOPER.
The two-hander female spy film from Paul Feig is said to be similar in approach to James Bond but more realistic and will add a good dose of comedy, obviously. No official synopsis on this one as of yet. Feig wrote the script and will serve as producer.
The adorable Larson is in talks to join Mark Wahlberg in the remake of THE GAMBLER.
However, it's being said that talks on her role are very early and so the details are "sketchy". Deadline reports that everything should come together in the next few days. Lauren Hutton was the central female in the 1974 version with James Caan in the lead.
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES helmer Rupert Wyatt is set to direct the script from William Monahan (THE DEPARTED). The flick focuses on, "a college professor whose gambling addiction overcomes him even after he gets in big trouble with the wrong guys."
Jessica Lange is also being eyed for a role.
