Hilary Duff joins ‘She Wants Me’

Thesp to play A-list starlet in Margolies' pic

LONDON — Hilary Duff has joined the cast of indie pic “She Wants Me,” which has just commenced lensing in Los Angeles and Gotham.

Pic, which is the second directorial effort from helmer-scribe Rob Margolies, follows the tale of a neurotic writer Sam, played by Josh Gad (“The Rocker”), who is making his next feature film and becomes conflicted after Duff’s A-list starlet character shows interest in playing the lead role, which he has already promised to girlfriend and struggling actress, Sammy, played by Kristen Ruhlin (“Descent”).

Multi-hyphenate Duff joins Charlie Sheen in the cast, who recently jumped aboard the project to play a cameo of himself in the movie.

Pic is produced by Stonebrook Entertainment’s Danny Roth, whose recent credits include up-and-coming Nick Cassavetes pic “Yellow,” starring Luke Wilson and Sienna Miller.

Mark and Christine Holder from Zero Gravity Management will also produce, while Jeremy Schott takes on an exec producer’s role.

Duff is repped by CAA while Sheen is repped by Evolution Ent.

Gad is repped by ICM and Zero Gravity Management and Ruhlin by John Carrabino Management.
