It’s been a busy few days for some of our favorites in movies.
Liam Hemsworth, who we’re eagerly awaiting to see in The Hunger Games, has sealed a deal to star in Timeless. He will play a man whose wife leaves him a fortune after her death. Haunted by her memory, he uses the money to build a time travel machine in order to see her one last time. Liam is still pretty young, so it will be interesting to see him play a husband.
Selena Gomez will be taking on another book adaptation according to Deadline. She, and her production company, have optioned to bring The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. She will play 17-year old Lennie Walker, a bookworm and band geek who plays clarinet and lives in the shadow of her extroverted older sister, Bailey. When Bailey dies suddenly, her younger sibling is left to take center stage and balance not one boy but two. One is his sister’s grieving boyfriend, the other a musically inclined transplant from Paris. Her whole world threatens to collapse all over again as she tries to juggle both guys.
Deadline also reports that Emma Roberts, who recently dropped out of co-starring with Selena in Springbreakers, will star alongside Craig Roberts (no relation) in I Am My Family Secret. The film involves two brothers, wildly different, who discover their parents have been hiding a startling and life-altering secret from them for over two decades.
And finally, it looks like Lily Collins will no longer be “undead.” She has dropped out of the Evil Dead remake due to scheduling conflicts. Could The Mortal Instruments be taking up most of her time? It will be interesting to see who fills her spot in the remake.
