We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this afternoon. First up, Toni Collette and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) have joined the cast of the thriller Defiant. The film is based on the true story of a double honor killing in India. Muslim men are allowed to marry non-Muslim women per Islamic law (in order to “take over the reproductive capabilities of the enemy), but Muslim women are not allowed to marry non-Muslim men. In May of 2011, two Muslim women allegedly killed their daughters because they had eloped and married migrant Bihari Hindu laborers.
Deadline reports that Patel will play Hari, “a young man who is, along with his girlfriend, trying to escape vengeful parents who want to kill the lovers to stop them marrying.” Colette will play a journalist covering the story who is drawn into danger. Bill Bennett is set to direct, and the project will be shopped to buyers at Cannes. Collette is currently filming Hitchcock and Patel stars in Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO series The Newsroom, which premieres this summer. Hit the jump for casting news regarding Richard Jenkins.
As most of you know, this weekend was the press junket for “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” here in Los Angeles. Since so many of the cast were in attendance, Summit Entertainment divided up the actors by who they played in the movie. Since Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius), Dakota Fanning (Jane), and Cameron Bright (Alec) played the Volturi in “New Moon”, it made sense they would share a press conference. So if you’d like to read or listen to what they had to say about their characters and being in “New Moon”, hit the jump.
