Gossip Girl's Blake Lively, Teresa Palmer and Abbie Cornish up for role in Savages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Three young actresses are up for the role in Oliver Stone’s upcoming flick SAVAGES. Blake Lively, Teresa Palmer and Abbie Cornish are all reading for the part of O (which was originally going to go to Jennifer Lawrence before she boarded THE HUNGER GAMES). Whichever of these three young ladies wins the part will join Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio Del Toro and potentially Salma Hayek. The film follows two drug dealers (Johnson and Kitsch) and their free-spirited friend, O, who gets kidnapped for ransom. Benicio Del Toro will play the role of the drug lord’s enforcer and Salma Hayek would play the matriarch of the drug cartel. As soon as this part is cast we should hear when production will begin.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen anything from Oliver Stone and this sounds like a really good film (at least in premise and actors), it’ll be interesting to see who wins the role of O- I’m personally rooting for Teresa Palmer.
