Lily Collins is one of those actresses who seems poised to take over the world of film, but who could just as easilys completely disappear from sight in a couple of year as actually manage to hit the a-list. She's got the lead role Tarsem's Snow White movie and The Mortal Instruments coming up and now Deadline reports she's joined the indie comedy, The English Teacher.
The movie is about Julianne Moore's title character, a passionate teacher who convinces her former star pupil (Michael Angarano) to put on his unproduced play at the high school. Lily Collins will portray a popular student who clashes with the teacher. Nathan Lane and Greg Kinnear are also set to star.
Craig Zisk is directing The English Teacher, with shooting set to start later this week in New York City.
