Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” movies, and “Hung” star Thomas Jane are in negotiations to join Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore in “LOL,” Mandate’s English-language remake of the French comedy.
Also joining the cast are Ashley Hinshaw and George Finn.
Liza Azuelos, who helmed the 2008 original, is directing the new pic produced by Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher.
The story centers on a teenage girl (Cyrus) who is dumped by her more sexually experienced boyfriend (Finn) while her divorcee mother (Moore) struggles to move on with her life.
Greene will play a high school bad girl, and Jane will be Cyrus’ father.
Hinshaw will play Cyrus’ best friend. Douglas Booth has already been cast as Cyrus’ love interest.
Greene, repped by Innovative Artists and McKeon Myones Management, next toplines “Apparition,” a supernatural thriller from Dark Castle and Warner Bros., and recently wrapped “Butter,” an indie comedy with Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman.
Jane, repped by CAA, garnered a Golden Globe nomination for portraying reluctant male prostitute Ray Drecker on HBO’s “Hung,” whose second season premiered Sunday. He recently starred in and directed the indie thriller “Dark Country.”
The ICM-repped Hinshaw appeared in “Fringe” and “Gossip Girl”; Finn has appeared in episodes of “90210” and “How I Met Your Mother.”
