Vincent Cassel Attached to 'Child 44', Rooney Mara Set for 'Carol'


The 'Black Swan' actor replaces Philip Seymour Hoffman, while the 'Social Network' actress fills in for Mia Wasikowska.

Two projects have made changes in their cast ensemble. First off, Deadline reports that Philip Seymour Hoffman is no longer committed to "Child 44" following Vincent Cassel's inclusion in the Daniel Espinosa-directed movie, which has been filming since June. Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman and Joel Kinnaman also star in it.

Adapted from Tom Rob Smith's thriller novel, "Child 44" is a story of a military cop investigating a series of child murders in 1950s Stalinist Russia. Richard Price provides the script, with Ridley Scott, who was once set to serve behind the lens, and Michael Schaefer serving as producers. Erik Feig and Jim Miller are overseeing for Lionsgate.

The Weinstein Company's "Carol", meanwhile, has cast Rooney Mara to replace Mia Wasikowska, Screen Daily learns. Based on Patricia Highsmith's novel "The Price of Salt", it is about a lesbian romance in 1950s New York. A 20-year-old girl working at a department store will strike up a relationship with a rich wife trapped in a bad marriage.

Cate Blanchett will star opposite the "Side Effects" actress in the pic directed by Todd Haynes and penned by Phyllis Nagy. "We're over the moon to have Rooney on board. I've been a tremendous admirer of her work from the beginning, so the thought of bringing her together with Cate onscreen is thrilling to say the least," Haynes says.
