LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” movies, and “Hung” star Thomas Jane are in negotiations to join Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore in an English-language remake of a French comedy.
“LOL” centers on a teenaged girl (Cyrus) who is dumped by her more sexually experienced boyfriend (George Finn) while her divorcee mother (Moore) struggles to move on with her life.
Greene will play a high school bad girl, and Jane will be Cyrus’ father. Additionally Ashley Hinshaw (“Fringe”) will play Cyrus’ best friend, while Douglas Booth has already been cast as Cyrus’ love interest.
Liza Azuelos, who directed the 2008 original, is shooting the remake for Mandate Pictures, the company behind “Juno.”
