Casting Bits: Natalie Portman Looking For Next Project, Seth Green Joins ‘The Identital,’ Alexander Ludwig Lands ‘Final Girl’ And More

Natalie Portman is currently looking over a number of projects, most with a similar action-edge. Tyler Shields’ Final Girl cast Hunger Games star Alexander Ludwig. And Seth Green landed a part in the indie movie The Identical. Get the details below:

  • Hunger Games‘ Alexander Ludwig just landed a new gig. The young actor has been cast in Final Girl, the debut feature of famed celebrity photographer Tyler Shields. Ludwig will star alongside Abigail Breslin. Final Girl tells the story of a young woman (Breslin) who has been targeted by a pack of teenage boys – we suspect Ludwig is one of said boys – as part of a sick initiation ritual. But she ends up turning things around for them. Source: Variety
  • Director Justin Reardon is busy casting his debut feature A Many Splintered Thing. Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Giovanni Ribisi, Topher Grace and Philip Baker Hall have all joined the cast. Chris Evans and Michele Monaghan are already set to star in the film. A Many Splintered Thing tells the story of a man who has given up on love until he meets a woman at a charity dinner. Unfortunately, she’s married and he can’t just bluntly tell her he digs her. This all sounds like your typical romantic comedy. Usually movies like this tend to follow the same formula, but you never know, this might surprise us. Source: IndieWire
  • Seth Green has been cast in the indie movie The Identical. He’s joining Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta (who is busy busy these days) and Joe Pantoliano. The movie has been described as a “rock and roll fable about the power of music and dreams.” Green will play a drummer who loves his wine, women and song. Source: Variety
  • Last we heard, Natalie Portman was set to star in the western Jane Got A Gun. Now she’s considering other projects on top of that (and Thor 2!) Word is she’s being offered the lead role in Code Name Sasha, a thriller in which she would play a single mother who has been living life on the edge since she was a teen. She’s also being considered for Last Witness, about a psychologist working with the only survivor of a bombing in a cafe. The spin? He has amnesia. Whatever she decides, she’ll be great. She always is. The Wrap
