Brittany Robertson, star of the recently cancelled CW show “The Secret Circle,” is set to star in director Tim McCann’s White Rabbit, a trippy drama about a bullied high school teen tormented to the breaking point by visions of the bunny he killed as a boy.
Robertson joins a cast that includes “True Blood’s” Sam Trammell and The Descendants star Nick Krause. The 22-year-old will play Krause’s girlfriend. Production on the film is slated to begin later this month in New Orleans.
Robertson is coming off the disappointing Wes Craven sequel Scream 4 and Kevin Williamson’s “The Secret Circle,” in which she played orphaned witch Cassie Blake. Her only other horror cred is 2009’s supernatural teen thriller From Within.
Despite hitting a truck bump on the road recently, actress-turned-tabloid queen Lindsay Lohan is still on the comeback trail. The Mean Girls star is said to be in talks to join Ashley Tisdale in Dimension Films’ Scary Movie 5, set to release in theaters April 19, 2013.
Malcolm Lee (Undercover Brother) is attached to direct the horror-comedy from a script co-written by producer David Zucker (Airplane). Unlike previous entries in the series, which poked fun at a variety of horror movies, part five will only spoof Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-nominated film Black Swan.
Lohan made her horror film debut in the 2007 serial-killer drama I Know Who Killed Me. She played stigmatic twins with very large breasts. In 2010, she starred in Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse actioner Machete. She portrayed a junkie socialite with very large breasts.
In addition to Scary Movie 5, Lohan’s latest projects include the Lifetime biopic “Liz and Dick,” in which she plays the iconic Elizabeth Taylor and the Bret Easton Ellis-penned kink drama The Canyons, costarring porn star James Deen.
