Callan McAuliffe, India Eisley to co-star in ‘Kite’

Duo join Samuel L. Jackson in live-action remake of anime pic

Callan McAuliffe and India Eisley have signed on to co-star with Samuel L. Jackson in the live-action remake of the Japanese anime film “Kite.”

Ralph Ziman will helm the pic that follows a young woman living in a failed state after the financial collapse, where a corrupt security force profits on the trafficking of young women. When her policeman father is killed, she vows to track the murderer down with the help of his ex-partner.

Eisley will play the girl and McAuliffe will play the childhood friend of the girl who comes to her rescue.

Anant Singh and Distant Horizon’s Brian Cox will produce alongside Moises Cosio and Alberto Muffelmann of Detalle Films.

The CAA and Alchemy Entertainment-repped McAuliffe is set to play young Jay Gatsby in Warner Bros. “The Great Gatsby” and was most recently seen in Robert Connolly’s “Underground: The Julian Assange Story” that premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival.

Eisley is repped by ICM Partners and Justice & Ponder and just wrapped production on the Disney pic “Maleficent.”
