     July 13, 2011


We have a couple of casting bits to bring you tonight. First up, Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds) has signed on to star opposite Jesse Eisenberg in the heist pic Now You See Me. Variety confirms Laurent’s place in the Louis Leterrier film which follows an FBI team as they track a group of the world’s greatest illusionists who rob banks and then “make it rain” on their audiences. Laurent can currently be seen alongside Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer in writer/director Mike Mills’ dramedy Beginners.

Next up, Treme‘s Kim Dickens has landed a role next to Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron in Killer Films’ Heartland. The pic tells the story of a father (Quaid) who wants nothing more than for his son (Efron) to take over the family’s Iowa-based seed business. Unfortunately for him, the son has his heart set on driving a race car. According to Deadline, Dickens will play the role of Efron’s mother, Irene. Dickens can next be seen on the silver screen in director Craig Brewer’s Footloose remake which hits theaters later this year on October 14th.
