Stepping in as the female lead, Rachel Bilson has delightfully joined the cast of "Jumper" to replace Teresa Palmer who walked out from the project after her role was reconceived as a 25-year-old woman rather than a 20-year-old, Variety has reported.
The latest star to come down to the list, Bilson will share the scenes with the likes of Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jamie Bell, enhancing the line-up as a real stellar cast for sure. Filming has already begun in Toronto with Doug Liman at helm and Jim Uhls also Simon Kinberg rewriting the script originally penned by David Goyer.
A Regency Enterprises and 20th Century Fox production, the picture is an adaptation of Steven Gould's 1992 novel of the same title which revolves around a broken-home young man who finds out that he possesses the ability to teleport. Kinberg, Jay Sanders, and Lucas Foster are all producing while Ralph Vicinanza and Vince Gerardis are both serving as executive producers.
