Pearce To Play Warhol

Exclusive: Hayden gives casting scoop

In an interview with Empire, Star Wars' Hayden Christensen revealed some key casting for the forthcoming Edie Sedgewick biopic Factory Girl. Guy Pearce will join Sienna Miller's Edie and play Andy Warhol, Christiansen will play a role based on Bob Dylan and Jimmy Fallon will also feature.

The erstwhile dark lord unveiled some other new projects, including Awake, a psychological drama with Sigourney Weaver and Jessica Alba, shortly to start shooting in New York, and Penelope, which Christiansen describes as “a fable-esque tale, sort of like an Edward Scissorhands-type movie, but for a female who’s been cursed with a pig face.” Christina Ricci will star as the eponymous swine-girl with support from Reese Witherspoon.
