‘D.E.B.S’ casts Foster, Brewster

Thesps join Aoki, Good, Ritchie as secret agent recruits

Sara Foster and Jordana Brewster will topline “D.E.B.S.,” Screen Gems’ feature version of Angela Robinson’s comedy short that debuted at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.

Robinson directs her own script, with filming beginning this week.

Pic is about a quartet of plaid-skirted high school girls whose SAT scores display an exceptional aptitude for lying, cheating and killing, so they are drafted to be secret agents.

Foster portrays the leader of the D.E.B.S., while Brewster is her bad-girl counterpart. Devon Aoki (“2 Fast 2 Furious”), Meagan Good (“Biker Boyz”) and Jill Ritchie are the other D.E.B.S. members.

Ritchie, who’s the sister of Kid Rock, reprises the role she played in the short. Michael Clarke Duncan plays the D.E.B.S. Academy president, while Holland Taylor (“The Practice”) is the headmistress.

The transition between short and feature film arenas was speedy. Robinson readied a feature script so that when Screen Gems prexy Clint Culpepper sparked to the 11-minute pic at Park City, he was able to greenlight a low- cost feature that could begin production just four months later.

Foster just completed her feature starring debut alongside Owen Wilson in the George Armitage-directed “The Big Bounce.”

This is the first acting gig for Brewster since “The Fast and The Furious.” She’s been preoccupied with school: last Friday, she wrapped the final exams that will allow her to graduate with Yale University’s class of 2003.
