Slated to be a good onscreen companion to Anna Faris, Michelle Trachtenberg has signed on to take starring role in Universal Pictures' drama comedy "Kids in America (2007)", MTV has reported.
The latest acting talent to join in the cast lineup, the beauty has already begun shooting her scenes in Phoenix, Arizona last week, playing a dark-haired, fishnet-stocking-clad goth girl whose affection for The Cure and New Order clashes with A Flock of Seagulls mentality surrounding her. Also starring are Topher Grace, Teresa Palmer, Seth Gabel, and Dan Fogler, among others.
Set in the 1980s, "Kids" finds Grace as an aimless college grad named Matt Franklin who pursues his dream girl at a wild Labor Day weekend party, finding himself struggling with his burgeoning adulthood over the course of the night alongside his twin sister and their best friend.
Canadian filmmaker Michael Dowse is directing from script he himself wrote alongside Jackie and Jeff Filgo with Brian Grazer producing. Meanwhile Grace is also serving as the flick's executive producer, accompanied by Gordon Kaywin plus Dany Wolf.
