27 March 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Amber Tamblyn, best known around these parts for, er, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, is in final negotiations to play the lead in ensemble drama Main Street.

The film was written by the late Horton Foote, of The Great Debaters (which starred Denzel Washington) and a long history of successful playwriting. British director John Doyle is taking the helm, and is in talks with Orlando Bloom, Ellen Burstyn, Patricia Clarkson and Colin Firth to join the film.

The story is set in a small, economically decayed US city that's "facing the consequences of change", amid a group of "diverse" residents. Foote wrote it after visiting Durham, North Carolina a few years ago.
