Abbie Cornish Replaces Emily Blunt In Immigration Drama ‘The Girl’

Screen Daily report that Cornish has signed on to the drama “The Girl,” which is set to be directed by David Riker (”La Ciudad”). The actress will play a young Texan mother who starts smuggling immigrants across the border from Mexico. When things go wrong, she has to travel across Mexico with the titular eight year old orphan. The film’s currently in pre-production, and co-producers Goldcrest will be shopping it around at the American Film Market in November.

Emily Blunt had been attached to the project since as far back as the beginning of 2008, but, with the actress trying to find room for ”Salmon Fishing In The Yemen,” an untitled Lynn Shelton comedy with Rachel Weisz, and Rian Johnson‘s “Looper” before the end of the year, we imagine scheduling conflicts put paid to that. In fact, while we love Blunt, Cornish seems like a stronger choice for a role as a working class Texan mom, as little as we know about the project.
