Haley Bennett Lines Up Two New Projects; 'Twilight' Actress Angela Sarafyan Joins James Gray's 'Low Life'

Already cast in Terrence Malick's "Lawless" opposite lauded stars Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara, the trajectory of Haley Bennett's career is certainly going upward. Her career so far has only seen her star in smaller fare such as Joe Dante's "The Hole" and Gregg Araki's "Kaboom" but her casting in Malick's project may have set something off, with the actress now booking two indie roles for 2012.

Already cast in Terrence Malick's "Lawless" opposite lauded stars Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara, the trajectory of Haley Bennett's career is certainly going upward. Her career so far has only seen her star in smaller fare such as Joe Dante's "The Hole" and Gregg Araki's "Kaboom" but her casting in Malick's project may have set something off, with the actress now booking two indie roles for 2012.

Firstly, Bennett will lead opposite "Red Riding Hood" star Shiloh Fernandez in Mo Ogrodnik's mysterious "Deep Powder." Details are being kept under wraps for the NYU-lensed pic, though a profile of Ogrodnik -- an Associate Dean and Creative Director of the Arts at NYU's Abu Dhabi campus -- reveals that the film's original full title was "Deep Powder Alpine Country Club," so we're guessing snow will play a big part in the setting. 

Also on Bennett's calendar is a project from "The Myth Of The American Sleepover" helmer David Robert Mitchell, titled "Ella Walks The Beach." No analogy or symbolism involved in the title, with the story set to follow "a young woman who spends 24 hours traveling along an iconic California beach, testing the waters of suddenly being single." Mitchell also wrote the script.

Another actress on the up is the little known Angela Sarafyan, who Deadline reports has now joined James Gray's upcoming period-drama formerly known as "Low Life." With previous roles only in "The Informers," "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2," the actress now finds herself starring as Marion Cotillard's sister, opposite Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner, for the story of a Polish immigrant (Cotillard) who falls under the spell of a pimp and is forced into burlesque and vaudeville to survive, only to meet a magician who may be able to save her and her ill sister on Ellis Island.
