Angela Sarafyan, who played Tia in the final "Twilight" movie and has "Paranoia" opening this week, is the latest rising star to join the cast of Max Landis' directorial debut "Me Him Her," TheWrap has learned.
Big Beach Films ("The Kings of Summer") is producing and fully financing the indie movie, which stars fellow up-and-comers Dustin Milligan ("90210"), Luke Bracey ("Monte Carlo") and Emily Meade ("Young Adult").
In the words of Landis, who wrote "Chronicle" and "Frankenstein" for Fox, the indie comedy is "deeply personal, and at its most basic level, a generational story about relationships and identity."
Sarafyan will play a character named Heather Frost, who Landis has described as the antagonist of the film.
Big Beach co-founders Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub are producing “Me Him Her,” which is currently filming in Los Angeles. Protagonist Pictures is handling foreign sales.
Sarafyan is a striking beauty who plays Lucas Till's love interest in "Paranoia," which Relativity opens Friday on nearly 2,500 screens. She recently filmed the NBC pilot "I Am Victor" with John Stamos and will soon be seen as Marion Cotillard's sister in James Gray's "The Immigrant."
Sarafyan's past feature credits include "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" with Jason Sudeikis and the Bret Easton Ellis adaptation "The Informers." She's repped by Innovative Artists and Evolution Entertainment.
