Emma Roberts has been coming on strong over the past year or so, featuring in a number of indie films including “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” “What’s Wrong With Virginia” and more recently in the Sundance premiere “Homework.” And with “Scream 4” headed to theaters very soon, the actress is lining up another promising project.
Reps for the actress have confirmed with The Playlist that Emma Roberts is attached to star in the coming-of-age drama “Adult World.” Set to be directed by Scott Coffey (”Ellie Parker”), who also oversaw the rewrite of the script by Andrew Cochran, Roberts will play a Stanford grad with dreams of becoming poet who gets stuck working in a mom-and-pop bookstore.
We’ve been hearing that offers are out for a male counterpart as well as one older character, but no one has been cast just yet.
