As The Vampire Diaries is nearing its end, co-star Matthew Davis has been set as a lead opposite Daniella Alonso and John Corbett in ABC’s drama pilot Las Reinas. Also cast in the project, from feature writer Dean Georgaris, ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co., is The Leftovers alumna Amanda Warren.

Written by Georgaris and directed by Liz Friedlander, Las Reinas centers on Detective Alex De La Reina (Alonso) who is forced to confront her past when a case compels her to reconnect with her estranged family – the most powerful criminal outfit in Miami. Thrust back into the world she thought she had left behind, Alex must walk the murky line between the law and her family, and question her true destiny as a De La Reina.

Davis will play the good guy cop, Andrew Somerset. A recent transplant to Florida, the intelligent, observant and keenly perceptive Somerset is Sonya’s partner. Sonya may be “street royalty” – but Somerset is not about to let her go it alone (as much as she’d like to).

Warren will play Inspector Kathryn Geller, the tough as nails head of the Organized Crime Task Force. Geller is a big game hunter who’s been trying to get Alex to take down her Grandmother for years.

Georgaris executive produces with Chris Brancato, who serves as showrunner, as well as TMGC’s Mark Gordon and Nicholas Pepper for ABC Studios.

Davis recently wrapped an 8-year-run on the popular CW drama The Vampire Diaries whose series finale airs this Friday. He is repped by Gersh and Brillstein.

Warren just shot back-to-back features for Martin McDonagh and Darren Aronofsky. She also played William’s mother in the most recent Memphis episode of NBC’s This Is Us. Warrnen is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and MJ Management

CW Boss on The Originals’s Future (and other CW shows)

When Mark Pedowitz joined the CW five years ago, he made it be known that veteran Supernatural was one of his favorite shows. He got behind the series, upgraded its time slot and Supernatural got a second wind. Heading into Season 11, the series starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki may not be winding down soon.

“Jensen and Jared seem very happy, and I’m thrilled with the creative direction of the show,” Pedowitz said. “Creatively the show is terrific, and if the ratings hold, it would outlast me in this chair.”

As for the long-percolating Supernatural spinoff, “it is still a priority, it just hasn’t happened,” Pedowitz said.

Speaking of spinoffs, The Originals has been closely associated with the show that spawned it, How does the end of The Vampire Diaries bode for its offshoot? “I hope it lives very well on its own; I’m hopeful that we will see a fifth year,” Pedowitz said.

During the executive session, which began with Pedowitz doing a jig on stage to Settle For Me from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, he reenacted the negotiations for Supergirl, which moved from CBS to the CW in May. They went something like this: “Would you like Supergirl? Where do I sign?,” Pedowitz said.

As he noted at the upfronts, ratings expectations for the import are pretty high. “It won’t do as well as it did on CBS but I anticipate it will be out Ni.1 or N.2 show behind The Flash,” he said.

In an early encouraging sign, the CW is airing Supergirl repeats this summer which have gotten traction on the new network.

Nina Dobrev In Talks To Join Sony’s ‘Flatliners’ Reboot

Author: Jen | April 21, 2016 | Comments Off on Nina Dobrev In Talks To Join Sony’s ‘Flatliners’ Reboot

Filed Under: | Casting News, Nina Dobrev, Non TVD Projects

EXCLUSIVE: Nina Dobrev exited The Vampire Diaries last year after six seasons to tackle the big screen full-on, and the actress looks to have surgically scored. Dobrev is in talks to star in Sony’s reboot of the sci-fi medical thriller Flatliners opposite Ellen Page and Diego Luna.

In the Niels Arden Oplev-helmed project based the 1990 film, the Bulgaria-born, Canada-raised actress will play Marlo, an overachiever who is the top of her class. Oplev, who directed the original Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, is directing from a screenplay by Ben Ripley. Michael Douglas and Laurence Mark are producing.

Opening with the line “today is a good day to die,” the original Flatliners featured Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland and Kevin Bacon and focused on a group of medical students who conduct near-death experiments to travel into the afterworld to find greater meaning and hidden truths. Being a movie, things go wrong, and they get a lot more than they bargain for.

Dobrev is in production on Paramount’s XxX: The Return of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel. She wrapped recently on indie comedy Crash Pad, opposite Domhnall Gleeson, and is attached to star opposite Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield in indie drama Arrivals, as Deadline exclusively reported in September.

Nina Dobrev Joins ‘Arrivals’ Pic With Asa Butterfield & Maisie Williams

Author: Jen | September 30, 2015 | Comments Off on Nina Dobrev Joins ‘Arrivals’ Pic With Asa Butterfield & Maisie Williams

Filed Under: | Casting News, Nina Dobrev, Non TVD Projects

EXCLUSIVE: Former The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev is taking another trip to the big screen. Coming off the Toronto Film Festival and SpectreFest screenings of horror comedy The Final Girls, she is now headed for Arrivals, I’ve learned. The actress will join Ender’s Game’s Asa Butterfield and Game Of Thrones’ Maisie Williams in the Peter Hutchings-directed coming-of-age indie.

Dobrev, who left the CW’s Vampire Diaries earlier this year after six seasons, will play American flight attendant Izzy, who is the love interest of Butterfield’s character. The screenplay by Fergal Rock was a 2013 Academy Nicholl semifinalist. The pic, produced by BCDF Pictures and Kalahari Films & Media, is set to start shooting in South Africa this winter.

Butterfield’s Calvin is a hypochondriac college dropout who now works as a baggage handler at Cape Town airport. In a funk, he is pulled into the unconventional bucket list quest of Brit teen Skye, played by GoT’s Williams, who also appears on Doctor Who this season. That team-up helps Calvin to face his deepest fears.

Now off the small screen from playing Elena Gilbert on TVD, Dobrev will be seen October 9 on the big screen in the limited release of The Final Girls. Having debuted at SXSW, the Todd Strauss-Schulson directed film also stars Malin Akerman and Silicon Valley’s Thomas Middleditch. Degrassi: The Next Generation alum Dobrev previously appeared in last year’s Let’s Be Cops, 2012’s The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, and 2009’s Chloe.

Dobrev is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Hansen Jacobson.
