Casting Update: Haley Bennett joins The Equalizer

Haley Bennett is continuing with her busy schedule, signing on for a role in Sony‘s redo of The Equalizer. Denzel Washington stars alongside Chloe Moretz and Melissa Leo, and Antoine Fuqua is directing. Bennett, whose earlier credits include The Haunting Of Molly Hartley and Marley & Me, has completed a string of movies in the past year including the untitled Terence Malick film opposite Christian Bale; the psychological thriller Kristy for the Weinstein Company; and Things People Do co-starring Wes Bentley.

Bennett, repped by CAA and The Schiff Co, next shoots indie drama The White City, which will be co-directed by writer Tanner King Barklow (from the Oscar-nommed The Invisible War) and Gil Kofman. Thomas Dekker and Bob Morley also star in the story of an emotionally charged love triangle between three young artists that develops against the hot political climate of modern Tel Aviv.

MGM Picks Up ‘If I Stay’

After Summit put the film into turnaround earlier this year, “If I Stay” has found a new home as MGM has picked it up with Chloe Moretz in final negotiations to star.

Moretz had been in talks to star but a deal was never set in stone while the film was at Summit. When the film went into turnaround, she fell off but was re approached with a new deal after MGM came on board.

RJ Cutler will remain on as director. The pic will be a co-production between Summit and MGM.

Based on Gayle Forman’s 2009 novel, “If I Stay” is about a girl who has an out-of-body experience following a car accident which puts her in a coma and kills the rest of her family.

Denise DiNovi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures will produce.

The move makes sense for MGM given that the studio has already built a relationship with Moretz with the “Carrie” reboot which comes out later this fall.

Moretz is repped by WME and 3 Arts can be seen next in “Kick-Ass 2.”
