Isabelle Fuhrman On For After Earth

Isabelle Fuhrman On For After Earth

She’s about to be seen in a relatively small role by a huge worldwide audience in The Hunger Games, but young actress Isabelle Fuhrman is now in negotiations for a bigger part in another hefty sci-fi film: she’s on track to feature in After Earth.

The film, which used to be called 1000 AE, sees Will Smith as a heroic sort in a future where our planet has become uninhabitable. He’s travelling with his son (played by real-life sprog Jaden in a blatant piece of typecasting) when the two crash-land on Earth. With his father injured, it’s up to the boy to prove his mettle and rescue them both.

Fuhrman is up for the role of Rayna, the younger Smith’s character’s best pal. If she locks in a deal, she’ll start shooting along with the rest of the cast (which already includes Sophie Okonedo and Zoe Kravitz) in Pennsylvania and Utah this coming March. M. Night Shyamalan is the man bringing it all to life. Perhaps this will be a comeback of sorts following The Last Airbender

After Earth is currently targeting a June 7, 2013 release slot. But long before that, Fuhrman will be Clove in The Hunger Games, arriving March 23 this year. She also cropped up as the spooky girl adopted by Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard in Orphan.
