Brendan Frasen and Matt Dillon will be in fiiiiine company on the Freaky Deaky set. A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Katie Cassidy is in talks to play the female lead in the Charles Matthau-directed adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel.

Cassidy will play Robin Abbot, an ex-hippie radical who served time for blowing up a police car. After her release, she reconnects with Brendan Fraser (thankfully back in a big boy role) to use their bomb-making skills to trick an alcoholic movie mogul into handing over millions of dollars. Matt Dillon plays a bomb squad officer who stumbles upon their plot.

The production is also on the hunt for a new William H. Macy now that William H. Macy has left the project. I would recommend William H. Macy but he can’t do it. (Variety)
