Actress to star in director's coming-of-age comedy

Madeline Carroll (“Swing Vote”) has been cast in the lead role of Rob Reiner’s coming-of-age comedy “Flipped” for Castle Rock prods.

East of Doheny topper Kelly Gonda is producing along with Reiner and producing partner Alan Greisman for Castle Rock. Shooting begins June 26 in Michigan with Reiner directing.

“Flipped,” based on Wendelin Van Draanen’s young-adult novel, centers on the confusing romantic developments of antagonistic boy and girl neighbors who eventually share a kiss when they reach their teens in 1963. Reiner and writer-producer Andy Scheinman (“Bait”) wrote the screenplay.

Aidan Quinn and Penelope Ann Miller will play the parents of Carroll’s character; John Mahoney will portray the boy’s grandfather.

Carroll recently shot indie drama “Cafe” opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy for director Marc Erlbaum and producers Sean Covel, Chris Wyatt and J. Andrew Greenblatt. She’ll also be seen in Relativity’s “The Spy Next Door” opposite Jackie Chan.
