Cassidy set for ‘Monte Carlo’

Actress to star opposite Gomez, Meester

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, while Cory Monteith is set to play the love interest.

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 a girl and her best friend who travel to Paris, accompanied by her future, uptight stepsister. When one of the girls is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress, they are caught up in a whirlwind of attention and find themselves going on a dream vacation to Monte Carlo.

Bezucha co-wrote the adapted 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 the 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.
