Cassidy, Monteith Gamble On “Monte Carlo”

Katie Cassidy (“Harper’s Island,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street”), Cory Monteith (“Glee”) and Andie MacDowell have all joined the comedy “Monte Carlo” at Fox 2000 and New Regency says the trades.

Based on Jules Bass’ novel “Headhunters”, the story follows three girls visiting Paris where one (Selena Gomez) is mistaken for a spoiled British scocialite.

They’re soon caught up in a whirlwind of attention and find themselves on a dream vacation in Monte Carlo. A stolen million-dollar necklace also comes into the caper.

Cassidy joins Leighton Meester in the roles of the two friends. Monteith plays Cassidy’s football player boyfriend who travels to Europe in pursuit of her. McDowell plays Gomez’s mother.

Tom Bezucha directs from a script he co-wrote with April Blair. Nicole Kidman, Denise Di Novi, Rick Schwartz and Alison Greenspan are producing.

Filming kicks off next month in Nice, Budapest and Paris.
