Lily Collins Signs On For Writers
With Logan Lerman and Kristen Bell
Lily Collins is clearly not looking to hang around the house or take up pottery now that she’s no longer starring in the Evil Dead reboot. That’s for wimps: she’s in talks to star in Shakespearian update Rosaline and will report next week to the North Carolina set of Josh Boone’s Writers along with Logan Lerman, Kristen Bell, Nat Wolff and Liana Liberato.
Boone, who is making his directorial debut from his own script, already has Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly starring as a famous novelist and the ex-wife he’s obsessed with. Collins is on to play their college-aged daughter who finds herself the subject of romantic obsession courtesy of fellow student Lerman.
A blend of comedy and drama, Writers will apparently spin several interweaving stories of the various family members and other people in their lives. And if you’ve been itching to win a movie trivia contest by knowing which film features not only Arnold Schwarzenegger’s teenage sprog Patrick but also author Stephen King in a cameo, Writers has you covered. You're welcome, pub quiz fans.
