Kaya Scodelario has ‘Fishes’ to fry

'Skins' thesp replaces Rooney Mara in Gregorini indie

“Skins” star Kaya Scodelario is set to replace Rooney Mara as the lead in Francesca Gregorini’s indie “Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes.”

Gregorini wrote the script, which follows Emanuel, a troubled 17-year-old girl who babysits her new neighbor’s “baby,” which is actually a very life-like doll. She goes along with the delusion while befriending the neighbor, who happens to be the spitting image of Emanuel’s late mother.

Matthew Brady is producing via his MRB Prods. banner along with Gregorini, while Paul Schiff, Kevin Iwashina and Jonathan Gray will exec produce.

Along with Tatiana von Furstenberg, Gregorini previously wrote, directed and produced the 2009 indie drama “Tanner Hall,” which Mara toplined prior to her breakout role as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

Best known for her role as Effy Stonem on the controversial hit Brit series “Skins,” Scodelario next stars as the lead in Andrea Arnold’s adaptation of “Wuthering Heights.” Thesp, who also appeared in “Clash of the Titans” and “Moon,” recently wrapped Ol Parker’s indie drama “Now Is Good,” which stars Dakota Fanning and Jeremy Irvine.

Scodelario is repped by CAA and U.K.-based Curtis Brown Group.
