Another feature that posits lycanthropy as a romantic/sexual metaphor, the indie feature JACK & DIANE is getting ready to roll with the word that actress Juno Temple (pictured) has signed on for one of the leading roles.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Temple has taken over for originally attached Ellen Page, who dropped out of the story of a romance between two teenaged girls in which one of the partners is a werewolf, whose transformation represents her all-consuming love and desire. Bradley Rust Gray, whose low-budget drama THE EXPLODING GIRL recently went into limited release, wrote and will direct JACK & DIANE, which is described as “not a horror movie” and rolls in late May on New York City locations. “Those were big shoes to fill, but when we met her, we and the director knew instantly,” Jen Gatien, who’s producing the film with Karin Chien and So Young Kim, tells the trade of Temple. “She looks like she’s from the East Village and has this angelic quality to her. We had to firm down our schedule so she’d be in the film because we knew she was in demand.” Indeed, Temple has been very busy lately, having come aboard two other features following recent turns in GREENBERG and YEAR ONE.
