Four Join ‘Penelope’

ON

Thanks to Variety we have received word that four new names have been added to the Christina Ricci and Reese Witherspoon topliner Penelope.

Catherine O’Hara, Peter Dinklage, James McAvoy and Richard E. Grant have joined the production for helmer Mark Palansky from a script by Leslie Caveny.

Hayden Christensen was in talks for a role in this film, but it seems those talks fell to the way-side.

The film concerns a young woman who must break a family curse and find true love. McAvoy will play the title character’s love interest, O’Hara and Grant her parents. Dinklage plays a photog obsessed with photographing the title character, who’s been cursed with the face of a pig.
