'Nice Guys' Actress Joins Sofia Coppola's 'The Beguiled' Remake (Exclusive)
Angourie Rice joins Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst and Colin Farrell in the film.
Angourie Rice, who starred opposite Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in Shane Black's The Nice Guys, has been cast in Sofia Coppola's next movie, The Beguiled.
The film has put together a strong cast with Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst and Colin Farrell attached to star. Coppola, who will direct, wrote the screenplay based on a novel by Thomas Cullinan. The film is a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood classic, which centered on a wounded Union soldier who is taken into a Southern girls' academy. There, the desires of the lonely women set off a whirlwind of jealousy, hate and lust.
Farrell will play the soldier originally played by Eastwood while Kidman, Fanning, Dunst and Rice will play residents at the girls' academy.
Sofia Coppola, Roman Coppola and Youree Henley are producing the film while Fred Roos is executive producing. Focus will distribute the project.
After appearing in Black’s 1970s-set buddy cop movie The Nice Guys, Rice recently joined Sony and Marvel's Spiderman: Homecoming starring Tom Holland and Zendaya. She also will be seen in coming-of-age indie Jasper Jones with Toni Collette and Huge Weaving. Rice is repped by WME and Catherine Poulton Management.
