Amber Tamblyn moving to 'Main Street'

Actress in final negotiations to join Horton Foote's drama

Amber Tamblyn is in final negotiations to star in "Main Street," the Horton Foote Southern drama set to start shooting next month.

Tamblyn will play the lead character in the John Doyle-directed pic, in which residents of a close-knit Southern town see their lives disrupted when a stranger comes to town. The news follows word of Orlando Bloom entering negotiations to star as a small-town policeman and Andrew McCarthy being cast as a business manager.

Tamblyn has had a number of high-profile big-screen roles, including the part of Tibby in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" and a lead role opposite Michael Douglas in upcoming noir remake "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt."

On the television side, the Endeavor-repped actress is set to star in the upcoming ABC midseason procedural "The Unusuals" and starred as the title character in CBS' supernatural drama "Joan of Arcadia."

The script by Foote, who died March 4, is one of the last known completed works by the screenwriter and playwright.
