Lily Collins joins Julianne Moore and Michael Angarano in The English Teacher
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Although ABDUCTION with Taylor Lautner didn’t do well at the box office and her upcoming Snow White film with director Tarsem Singh hasn’t been released, I feel that Lily Collins is slowly reaching superstar status and the next few roles she takes are going to be pivotal in her young career. The daughter of Phil Collins has chosen a smaller indie role for her next movie, choosing to star in THE ENGLISH TEACHER. The film is about a high school English teacher who ends up falling for a former student after he returns from a failed playwright career. Julianne Moore will be playing the teacher, Michael Angarano the student and Collins will play a popular girl that has a run-in with the teacher.
So far, THE ENGLISH TEACHER has a pretty impressive cast, including Charlie Saxton, Julianne Moore, Michael Angarano, Greg Kinnear and Nathan Lane. The film marks the directorial debut of Craig Zisk (TV’s ‘Weeds’), who will be using a script from Dan and Stacy Charlton.
