Dianna Agron, A.K.A. Glee’s Quinn Fabray, has confirmed via her Twitter feed that she is in talks to play Robert De Niro’s daughter in the Luc Besson movie Malavita. The comedy thriller will follow an American mobster (De Niro) who moves to France under a Witness Protection Program but finds it hard to let go of his domineering ways, ultimately attracting the attention of the people he’s hiding from. Michelle Pfeiffer will play De Niro’s wife (and mother to Agron).
The casting news, broken by the Hollywood Reporter, also noted that Tommy Lee Jones is also in negotiations to come aboard.
Based on a novel by Tonino Benacquista, the script is being co-written by Besson who is also attached to direct. This could well be Agron’s road to a big-screen future after last year’s poorly received I Am Number Four.
