MY CSS FOR TITLES DOESN'T SHOW THIS BUT I AM RAGING IN CAPS HERE  
From THR:

Taylor Schilling has nabbed the female lead opposite Zac Efron in "The Lucky One," Warner Bros.' adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel.

The book tells of a Marine (Efron) who's survived three tours of duty in Iraq and attributes his good luck to a photograph he carried of a woman (Schilling) he doesn't even know. When he returns to the States, he sets out to find her.

The role was highly sought after among young Hollywood, with the studio conducting screen tests over the past two weeks. Among the actresses for the running were Abbie Cornish and Katie Cassidy.

...

Schilling, repped by Gersh, was one of the stars of NBC's recently canceled medical drama "Mercy." She recently completed shooting "Atlas Shrugged."


This is her:



No offense to her, she's got the right look sort of and she's beautiful but she looks kinda old and not just like a few years older! This was even one of the better pics... :/

AND WORSE... OVER ABBIE CORNISH! SHE WAS ONE OF MY DREAM BETHS... SHE IS SO GOOD! AND HAS SO MUCH CREDIBILITY!

IDK fingers crossed Taylor's screen test was legit better and they just didn't trade down from awesome Abbie (who undoubtedly is too good for this movie anyway, if we're being honest) over concern for the bottom line.

Dear God, please let this work out somehow. I'll be happy to be wrong about all my concerns. But OMG I AM SHAKING AND CRYING IN DISILLUSIONMENT AND ANGUISH RIGHT NOW. :''''''''''''(

"Abbie would have given the movie a shred of credibility. It's looked down on by the media already being a romantic drama and Sparks but with Abbie, people would have given it a chance."

EXACTLY!!!

This girl... I don't want to write her talent off since she has no credits and idk really, but seriously she has nothing to help sell this... just like Amanda!

And it's not even only the media (although that's key), even with me.

I hate the project for various reasons and have close to zero hope for it to become a) a good movie and b) successful (at the BO) but with Abbie I would have given it a chance.

Seriously, there is no way that the additional money she asked for would not have paid off.

I read an article recently in the trades which basically says successful romantic movies (comedies or dramas) always have equally appealing leads. And she is just a complete nobody. That's fine for some roles but in romantic dramas star power is important.

Ugh ugh ugh.

I can't believe that the WB if fucking this up so badly.

It was a gif of a sad MJ sitting alone. Sad Keanu will have to suffice.

Re: I mean... Yes, but...
i feel really badly for amanda... she was better than any preview showed her and got hardly any promo time. :(

Misused and all but absent/an afterthought during promo.

Re: I mean... Yes, but...
LOL I thought she was better in the previews than in the movie. I thought she was there but not much else and I felt it from the first day I saw she was cast. I hope I'm wrong about this new one.

Why won't they put a name actress with him - what are they afraid of???
