We’ve got a couple of casting stories for you this morning. First up, Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes) is in negotiations for the lead female role in Robert Zemeckis’ Flight. The Polar Express director’s return to live-action following his ten-year stretch of motion-capture movies stars Denzel Washington as an airline pilot who is heralded as a hero after he flies a damaged plane to safety. Washington’s heroic achievement becomes overshadowed by an investigation into whether or not he had been drinking before the flight.
Deadline reports that Reilly was one of three actresses that were shortlisted for the role of Nicole, a drug addict who befriends Washington’s character as each tries to get their demons under control. Olivia Wilde and Dominique McElligott (Moon) were the other two actresses in the running, but Reilly ultimately came away with the part. Flight starts shooting this October. Hit the jump for the casting news of Vanessa Hudgens in the serial killer drama Frozen Ground.
