24-year-old Britt Robertson is slowly becoming one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood even before the release of her high-profile 2015 movies, Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland and Nicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride. Now comes word from Deadline that Robertson will be joining Eddie Murphy in Cook, the comic actor’s first movie in over two years.
In the movie, Murphy plays a home cook hired by a dying man to take meals for his girlfriend and daughter Charlotte, the latter who will be played by Robertson.
Robertson first got attention on television with shows like “The Secret Circle” and “Under the Dome”, before getting the coveted role in Tomorrowland opposite George Clooney and being cast in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation.
Cook is directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) from “Californication” writer Susan McMartin’s script based on her own experiences. It’s the second production from Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon’s Cinelou production company, following Jennifer Aniston’s Cake, also co-starring Robertson, which was picked up at the Toronto International Film Festival to position for awards season with a one-week qualifying run and a January release. Cook will be distributed internationally by Warner Bros. through their 10-picture financing deal.
