In what’s poised to be a meeting of all the popular blondes on the big and small screens, Riverdales Lili Reinhart has just joined Elle Fanning and Ben Foster in the cast of Galveston. The film is an adaptation of Nic Pizzolatto’s novel, which actor-director Mélanie Laurent is helming from a script by none other than Pizzolatto. Its story centers on Roy, a New Orleans debt collector to be played by Foster, who’s coming off a great turn in Hell Or High Water. Roy’s ducking a crime boss when he goes on the run with a prostitute played by 20th Century Women’s (and The Neon Demon) Fanning. Reinhart, meanwhile, has been cast as the adult version of the daughter that Fanning’s character gives up at some point in the film. Production on Galveston begins next month.
