The star first rose to fame as Mattie Ross in True Grit, a role she was Oscar nominated for. She’s since starred in Romeo and Juliet and Ender’s Game, and is set to appear in upcoming films Barely Lethal, The Keeping Room, Term Life, The Homesman and Ten Thousand Saints.
Pitch Perfect writer Kay Cannon is writing the screenplay for the sequel while Paul Brooks, Max Handelman, Scott Niemeyer and Jeff Levine will produce.
Need a reminder of how awesome the first film was?
Ellie is an entertainment, TV and film journalist writing news and (hopefully incredibly witty) comment for RadioTimes.com. She loves light-hearted dramas and glossy US series - and is more than a little bit obsessed with Downton Abbey. Foodie, sun-seeker and aspiring novelist in her own time. Likes the fact that her name rhymes with telly.
