Juliette Lewis grabs indie roles

Thesp boards 'Hick,' 'Single Shot'

Exclusive: Juliette Lewis is staying busy in the indie realm, grabbing co-star roles in independent pics “Hick,” starring Chloe Moretz, and “Single Shot” with Alessandro Nivola and William H. Macy.

“Hick” also stars Eddie Redmayne and Blake Lively, and follows a Nebraska teen who sets off for the bright lights of Las Vegas.

Pic will be directed by Derick Martini with Andrea Portes penning the script. Steven Siebert and Christian Taylor are producing; Charles de Portes is exec producing.

“Single Shot,” about a man who finds trouble while deer poaching, also stars Juno Temple and Emily Mortimer and will be helmed by David Rosenthal and written by Matthew F. Jones, who penned the original tome.

Pic follows a man who, while on a deer-poaching expedition, accidentally shoots and kills a woman. While the man is trying to cover up the misdeed, he comes across a sack of money and a killer who’s after it.

Chris Coen, Aaron Gilbert and Keith Kjarval will produce.

The plan is that Lewis would shoot “Hick” first at the end of March and then follow up with “Single Shot” at the end of April.

Lewis has been busy in the past year with roles in Miramax’s “The Switch,” Fox Searchlight’s “Conviction” and Warner Bros.’ “Due Date.”

She is repped by Paradigm and BL Management.
