Panabaker questions the lessons in 'Prodigy'


Danielle Panabaker has been cast as the female lead in "Prodigy," director Chuck Russell's sci-fi action film from Intrepid Pictures and Kincine.

"Prodigy" centers on a prep school that turns teenagers into geniuses through a drug-and-diet regimen. When several alumni turn up dead, the valedictorian is assigned to investigate, leading him to a rebellious student (Max Theriot).

Panabaker plays the brilliant daughter of a senator who questions the powers that be.

Panabaker is repped by UTA and Management 360. (partialdiff)
