Thesp heads to ‘Monte Carlo’

Katie Cassidy signs on to Fox 2000 and New Regency pic

Katie Cassidy will star opposite Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester in young femme comedy “Monte Carlo,” from Fox 2000 and New Regency.

Andie MacDowell also has joined the cast, along with Cory Monteith, Australian thesp Luke Bracey and Brett Cullen.

Tom Bezucha will begin lensing the pic next month, shooting in Monaco, Budapest and Paris.

Loosely based on the book “Headhunters” by Jules Bass, “Monte Carlo” tells the story of best friends who travel to Paris, with one girl’s future, uptight stepsister. A case of mistaken identity finds them caught up in a whirlwind of attention leading to a dream vacation to Monte Carlo. Bezucha wrote the script with April Blair.

Producers are Nicole Kidman, Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan. Kidman originally intended to play a supporting role in the film, but opted out because of scheduling conflicts.

Cassidy, who stars on CW’s “Melrose Place,” appeared on the bigscreen in “Taken.” She also stars in the upcoming “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”

Among her other projects, MacDowell is in final talks to star in indie film “Mighty Fine,” from writer/director Debbie Goodstein and producer Kathryn Wallack. She recently wrapped production on indie pic “Daydream Nation,” which also stars Kat Dennings and Josh Lucas.
