Riley Keough, model and granddaughter of Elvis Presley, is stepping in for Ellen Page in the movie Jack and Diane. The movie is about a teenage lesbian werewolf, Jack, who falls in love with Diane. The roles were originally going to be played by Ellen Page and Olivia Thirby, who at the time were riding high on the success of Juno and taking advantage of their on-screen chemistry. However, rumors that Page was gay in real life put an end to her participation in the flick and Thirby eventually cancelled too.
The film has been plauged by pre-production delays since then, with the worst of their problems in the area of casting. Keough is the fifth actress to be cast as Jack. I hope she is the last, because she would be hot as a butch(according to Hollywood standards) lesbian werewolf. Straight girls have Twilight, when will lesbian teens get their own werewolf to lust after? Hopefully soon, Jack and Diane is set to go into production in June.
