“The Secret Circle” star Britt Robertson is joining Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders in the remake of French-Canadian comedy “Starbuck”, according to Deadline. Original flick director Ken Scott will be directing the English language remake as well.
Vaughn stars as a perennially immature middle aged guy who finds himself the target of angry criminals demanding money he owes them, estranged from his pregnant girlfriend (Smulders) after she deems him not mature enough to be a father, and facing giving up his identity to 533 children who he fathered as a sperm donor in his younger days. Robertson will play just one of those children fathered by the man they know only as Starbuck, while Pratt plays his lawyer, who has a large brood of his own. Filming begins later this year.
Robertson headline two short-lived teen series on The CW, first on “Life Unexpected”, then in this year’s “The Secret Circle.” On the big screen, she played Steve Carell’s daughter in “Dan in Real Life” and will next be seen opposite Dylan O’Brien in Sundance hit “The First Time.” She recently wrapped shooting on indie thriller “White Rabbit” opposite “The Descendants” star Nick Krause.
