“Life Unexpected” star Britt Robertson has landed the lead in the Disney Channel telepic “Avalon High.”
Robertson will play a teenager who moves to a new high school and discovers that her classmates are the reincarnations of King Arthur and his court.
Project is based on the book of the same name by Meg Cabot, author of the “The Princess Diaries” tomes. Script was penned by Julie Sherman Wolfe, and pic will be helmed by Stuart Gillard.
“Wizards of Waverly Place” trouper Gregg Sulkin co-stars with Robertson along with Joey Pollari, Devon Graye and Molly Quinn.
