Finally official casting news of Kristen in The Lifeguard. Last week, there were some news about Zach being in the movie but I never posted it since I was hesitant about it and it looked like they thought Martin Starr was Zach. Zach did tweet about it confirming he wasn’t in the movie. Below:
. @PittsburghNews4 dear sally wiggin. although i spent a good portion of my childhood imagining how thrilling it would be to hear my name uttered in your dulcet tones – it pains me to tell you that i have nothing whatsoever to do with the film LIFEGUARD currently shooting in pittsburgh. though i am good friends with @IMKristenBell (and long to work with her again soon) and of course love my hometown – it will more likely be my support of president obama’s reelection that will next bring me back to the burgh later this month. maybe we can get together while i’m home. until then. all the best. zq.
Here is the official news now on who else is in the movie with Kristen:
Kristen Bell will star in The Lifeguard, the film written and to be directed by Liz W. Garcia. Bell, who stars in Showtime’s House Of Lies, will star with Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr, Alex Shaffer, Joshua Harto and Amy Madigan. The film, which was packaged by CAA (the agency is selling domestic rights), will shoot in Pittsburgh this month. Bell will play Leigh, a reporter on the verge of 30 who abandons her life in New York City, returns home to get her high school job as a lifeguard, and starts a dangerous relationship with a 16-year-old delinquent.
The film is being produced by Mike Landry and Carlos Velazquez of C Plus Pictures, along with Harto and Garcia of La Pistola, Inc. The co-production is in association with Attic Light Films, Wild Invention and Houndstooth. Bell will next be seen in Hit And Run. Garcia and Harto created Memphis Beat for TNT. They are repped by CAA and Madhouse Entertainment, while Bell’s repped by CAA and Brookside Artist Management. Gummer and Shaffer are also repped by CAA, with Gummer, Shaffer, Starr and Madigan at Anonymous Content.
