Abbie Cornish takes lead in THE GIRL

Australian actress Abbie Cornish will now take the leading role in THE GIRL replacing Emily Blunt, who was originally attached.

Abbie Cornish will play the young, single mother, who is thrown into an unexpected and life-changing journey, when her quick money scheme to smuggle immigrants across the border between Texas and Mexico ends disastrously, leaving her stranded with an eight year old girl from Oaxaca.

The film, to be directed by David Riker, will be produced by Paul Mezey for New York based Journeyman Pictures and Douglas Cummins for London based producer / distributor AX1 Films.

Lulu Producciones in Mexico will co-produce, alongside Bonita Films.

Goldcrest Films are executive producers on the project.

THE GIRL, which is currently in pre-production, is set to start principle photography early in the New Year.
