Eddie Redmayne, Blake Lively board ‘Hick’

Derick Martini to helm Vegas road movie

Eddie Redmayne is set to star with Blake Lively and Chloe Moretz in the indie “Hick.”

Derick Martini will helm the pic, which focuses on a 13-year-old (Moretz) from Nebraska who gets more than she bargained for when she leaves for Las Vegas.

Lively will play a grifter who meets Moretz’s character on the road and takes the girl under her wing. Redmayne would play another loner who tries luring Moretz away and also shares a past with Lively.

Andrea Portes is adapting from the novel she wrote.

Steven Siebert and Christian Taylor will produce through Siebert’s Lighthouse Entertainment shingle and Taylor’s Taylor Lane Prods. Charles de Portes is exec producing.

Lively was recently seen in “The Town” and can be seen next in “Green Lantern.”

Redmayne just wrapped production on “My Week With Marilyn,” starring Michelle Williams.

Lively is represented by CAA and Untitled. Redmayne is repped by CAA, United Agents and Parseghian/Planco.
