“Twilight” star Ashley Greene is being eyed for a role in thriller/horror “Satanic” (formerly titled “Kristy”), according to The Wrap. The Weinstein backed film already has Haley Bennett cast in the lead role, and revolves around a group of college students who are attacked in their dorms over Thanksgiving break. Bennett’s Kristy leads the group in their attempt to survive and unmask their attackers. Oliver Blackburn is directing from a script by Anthony Jaswinski. Filming is expected to begin in mid-November and last through December in New Orleans.
Greene is most known for her role as Alice Cullen in “Twilight”, the finale of which, “Breaking Dawn Part II”, wraps up the vampire saga when it releases next week. She was last seen in horror pic “The Apparition” opposite Sebestian Stan, as well as quirky indie comedy “Butter” opposite Jennifer Garner and Olivia Wilde and recently wrapped up shooting on indie musical drama “CBGB”, based on the iconic New York night club.

Out of all the major announcements and teases at San Diego’s Comic-Con this year, one that elicited some of the biggest response was the reveal of sequel titles for Marvel’s upcoming “Avengers” related properties. “Thor 2″ has now been dubbed “Thor: The Dark World”, which is vague, but if you’re a comics fan, “Captain America 2″‘s official title should give you a pretty good idea of where it’s going: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is coming at you on April 4, 2014.
One person who’s bound to be amongst the most excited is Sebastian Stan, who played Chris Evans’ WWII era Steve Rogers’ best friend Bucky Barnes in the first film, and — SPOILER ALERT — who appeared to plunge to an icy death from a speeding train amidst battle. Well, it looks like Marvel is ready for Bucky to follow in the footsteps of his comic book counterpart and return as his newly revived and enhanced identity, Winter Soldier. As it’s been confirmed Cap will remain in modern times in his sequel, it appears Bucky is probably headed for the 21st Century as well. Bucky has a long history of being friend and foe to Marvel’s heroes, which we won’t go into, though it’s hard to tell how he will be tweaked for the movie universe. Anthony and Joseph Russo will direct “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
Stan has stuck mostly to TV since his “Captain America” adventures, starring in a sizeable arc on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” (with more likely for season 2) and is a regular on USA’s new drama “Political Animals.” He’s also completed filming on his first starring big screen role opposite Ashley Greene in Warner Bros’ horror “The Apparition.”

Ashley Greene has landed the female lead in indie punk scene drama “CBGB”, named for the famed New York rock club it revolves around, reports Variety. Greene will play Lisa Kristal, eventual business manager of the club and daughter to the club’s owner Hilly Kristal, who will be played by Alan Rickman.
In the script, Kristal is depicted as a fiery young woman who often clashed with her father, but ultimately ends up going to law school in order to help him keep the club. CBGB eventually closed down in 2008, and Kristal, who now controls the estate, is an executive producer on the film. The cast is rounded out by Malin Akerman playing Blondie singer Debbie Harry, Rupert Grint, Johnny Galecki, Stana Katic, Joel David Moore, Peter Vack, Kerry Bische, Taylor Hawkins, Mickey Sumner, Steven Schub and Evan Alex Cole. Randall Miller will direct later this month in Savannah, GA, from a script he wrote with Jody Savin.
Greene is most known for her role as Alice Cullen in “Twilight”, the finale of which, “Breaking Dawn Part II”, wraps up the vampire saga this November. She also has the female lead in horror pic “The Apparition” opposite Sebestian Stan out this September, as well as quirky indie comedy “Butter” opposite Jennifer Garner and Olivia Wilde.

Ashley Greene will be a gender-swapped modern version of Charles Dickens’ iconic orphan “Oliver Twist” in an updated twist of an adaptation called “Olivia Twisted”, reports Variety from Toronto. Greene will reunite with producer Michael De Luca on the film, after having starred in the TIFF premiered ensemble comedy “Butter” for him.
Michael Roberts wrote the script, which follows 19-year-old Olivia, the leader of a group of highly trained homeless street urchins. When they are assigned a kidnapping job, they “find themselves in the middle of a turf war between warring criminal factions.” The film will seek to combine “classic Dickensian elements with a unique gothic backdrop.”
Gothic backdrops should be something of a comfort zone for Greene, an alum of all five “Twilight” films, where she played nice vampire Alice Cullen. Part 1 of “Breaking Dawn” will be released in November, with Part 2 following a year later. Greene has also completed her first starring role in a studio feature, the horror film “The Apparition” opposite Sebastian Stan, releasing next February and will be seen opposite Miley Cyrus in high school rom-com “LOL.”

Ashley Greene looks appropriately scared (and skimpy) in new stills from upcoming horror film “The Apparition”, based on a true story about a young couple haunted by evil forces unleashed by a university parapsychology experiment. Ashley plays Kelly opposite fellow rising actor Sebastian Stan as Ben. They are joined by “Harry Potter”‘s Tom Felton as a paranormal expert who tries to help the couple get rid of their demons. Todd Lincoln makes his directorial debut on the film that shot on location in Germany.
Greene is most famous for her role as Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” movies but has been racking up outside projects, including “Butter” with Jennifer Garner, “LOL” opposite Miley Cyrus and “Skateland” with Shiloh Fernandez. Stan starred on NBC’s short-lived “Kings” and has a most likely pivotal role as Bucky Barnes opposite Chris Evans in “Captain America: The First Avenger”.
“The Apparition” comes out on September 9, 2011. See the first high resolution stills below.
