Sources said Dakota Fanning balked at a request that she shave her head for the role and both sisters withdrew abruptly.
Cameron Diaz plays the mother of the girls, a tough lawyer who takes her own case in court. Alec Baldwin plays the attorney who represents the child. Joan Cusack will also star in the drama.
I’d balk too if someone said I have to shave off my pritti locks. Hmph. Anywho, I think Abigail, who is adorable and brilliant in Little Miss Sunshine, is better suited to play Kate’s role.
Synopsis: The film follows the eccentric and irresistible Georgia Nicolson as she overcomes the trauma of being a teenager and moves up the “snogging scale”. Misunderstood by her ancient parents, but buoyed up by the love of her cat Angus and her best friends—“The Ace Gang”—Georgia struggles through life seeking out her two main desires: 1. To get a gorgeous sex-god as her boyfriend and 2. To throw the greatest 15th birthday party ever. When handsome brothers Tom and Robbie arrive at school, Georgia thinks her boyfriend dreams have been answered. But when she sees Robbie with her arch rival Lindsay, she devises a plan to show Robbie that she’s the mature, sophisticated girlfriend he deserves. Unfortunately Georgia’s plans—involving snogging lessons, stalking Lindsay, and dying her legs orange—don’t exactly run smoothly.
