     October 8, 2010


We have four brief casting stories for you this morning.  First up, the Winnipeg Free Press reports [via Bloody Disgusting] that Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League) has replaced Margarita Levieva in David Brooks’ ATM.  Described as “Hitchcockian”, the film (written by Buried screenwriter Chris Sparling), centers on three co-workers (Eve, Brian Geraghty, and Peck) who make a late-night visit to an ATM and end up in a desperate fight for their lives when they become trapped by an unknown man.

Hit the jump for casting news regarding Ray Liotta in Wanderlust, John Slattery in Return, and Martin Freeman in Animals.

ray_liotta_01THR reports that Ray Liotta has joined the cast of the comedy Wanderlust.  Directed by David Wain (Role Models), the film centers on a couple (played by Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston) that escapes from their modern life in New York City for an existence in a hippie commune.  The film costars Malin Akerman, Alan Alda, and Justin Theroux.  Wain co-wrote the script with fellow The State alum Ken Marino.  Liotta also recently signed on to costar in the crime thriller The River Sorrow.

Moving on, Mad Men‘s John Slattery has signed on to the indie drama Return, which costars Linda Cardellini and Michael Shannon.  According to Variety, “Slattery will play a war vet who befriends Cardellini’s character, a mother and wife who has just returned home from a tour of duty.”  Slattery will next be seen on the big screen this March in the sci-fi drama The Adjustment Bureau starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

Finally, Martin Freeman (BBC’s Sherlock) has landed a role in Marcal Fores’ feature debut AnimalsVariety reports that Freeman “plays a secondary school teacher in Animals, a fantasy-laced coming-of-age tale that Escandalo Films producer Sergi Casamitjana dubs as ‘Donnie Darko meets Gus Van Sant.'”  The film costars Augustus Prew (The Borgias) and Dimitri Leonidas (Tormented).  Freeman has recently been rumored to be the top choice to play Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
