The young stars, you can’t keep them out of this film. After signing Zac Efron, Miles Teller (Project X), and Deborah Ann Woll (Ruby Sparks, True Blood) for a few starring roles here and there, Deadline report that Are We Officially Dating? will also be graced with the presence of Imogen Poots (Fright Night). Judging purely by the film’s title, you might be able to surmise who she’ll play.
Deadline don’t put her role in exact terms, but Tom Gormican‘s film happens to revolve around three New York males who try to stay single — but, despite this, “each of them starts to fall in love.” Methinks Poots‘ character, along with Woll, are going to throw a wrench into those very plans, which indicates a somewhat familiar though, I should say, not necessarily boring character. This writer’s going to stay positive (if only because it’s healthy) and hold out hope that Dating? is, unlike the actual process, worth whatever effort it takes to come forth.
Shooting is expected to commence this month.
Otherwise, TheWrap inform us that Melissa George (30 Days of Night) is now a part of Felony, a credit which also makes her a co-star to Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson, and Jai Courtney. The film is scripted by its foremost male star and centers on his character, a cop who gets into some dangerous territory after accidentally killing a child during one night of drunken driving.
He engages in a cover-up, something a few other officers (such as Wilkinson‘s) help out with, but at least one member of the squad (Courtney) is having none of it. As was the case with our other newly-added female star today, the identity of George‘s character has not been stated; I’m thinking a wife, or something along those general lines. A reductive association, but what can you do?
Matthew Saville is directing Felony, which Blue-Tongue Films, Benaroya Pictures, and Goalpost Pictures Australia are all producing.
How do you feel about Poots and George landing these parts?
