First up in a bit of a casting round-up today is news that Aussie actress Isabel Lucas (“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” and maybe Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” if she makes the final cut) has signed up for “Careful What You Wish For.” The film will follow a self-conscious high school student who gets more than he bargained for when he starts an affair with the wife of a businessman (the role we’re assuming Lucas has taken), and discovers a devastating secret after a serious crime rocks their small town. Directed by Elizabeth Allen (“Aquamarine,” “Ramona and Beezus”), the film is described as a “sexy thriller reminiscent of “Basic Instinct,”” but we’d be surprised if Lucas lays herself quite as bare as Sharon Stone did.
