“The Secret Circle” star Britt Robertson will take the lead role in indie coming of age drama “Undiscovered Gyrl”, according to Variety. Multi-hyphenate Allison Burnett will direct the film, which is based on his own 2009 novel of the same name and follows Robertson’s Katie Kampenfelt, a recent high school graduate who takes a year off before college to explore her new adult life and write a blog about it: “A funny, erotic and poignant record of a young soul in peril, her blog gives her readership a rare, voyeuristic look into her exploits filled with men, alcohol and an insatiable desire to fill the void left by an absent father.”
Robertson headlined a pair of teen dramas on The CW, “Life Unexpected” and “The Secret Circle”, but both lasted less than two seasons. She’s now keeping busy with films, soon to be seen opposite Dylan O’Brien in “The First Time” and currently filming “The Delivery Man” (formerly “Starbuck”) with Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders.

The CW star Britt Robertson has joined the cast of indie “White Rabbit”, according to Deadline. “True Blood”‘s Sam Trammell and “The Descendants” scene-stealer Nick Krause play father and son in the psychological thriller about a former victim of bullying who seeks revenge.
Written by Anthony Di Pietro and to be directed at the end of July in New Orleans by Tim McKann, “White Rabbit” revolves around an often bullied high school student (Krause), who begins to have visions of a white rabbit he killed when he was nine. “The rabbit, along with other imaginary characters, turn menacing in the hopes of pushing him over the edge and luring him into one last fatal act of revenge.” Robertson will play his girlfriend.
Robertson headlined a pair of teen dramas for The CW network, “Life Unexpected” and more recently “The Secret Circle”, though both were cancelled less than two seasons into their runs. She’ll next be seen opposite Dylan O’Brien in coming-of-age dramedy “The First Time”, which premiered at Sundance last year and which we loved.
