The oh so lovely Amber Heard has been cast in Nicolas Cage’s 3D actioner “Drive Angry”, in a role that sounds suspiciously like the one we reported earlier as going to Charlotte Ross. I don’t know if it’s the same role, and Heard has replaced Ross, or if Ross ever actually got the role in the first place. Either way, THR says Heard will play a diner employee who partners up with Cage to find his granddaughter, who has been taken by the same people who murdered his daughter.
Also, Billy Burke of “Twilight” fame has signed on as the leader of a cult in the film, which will be directed by Patrick Lussier. The 3D vehicular action film is scheduled for an early 2011 release from Summit Entertainment.
