After scrapping her Disney image this year for Haromy Korine, the Spring Breakers star is reportedly in talks to join the cast of The Kitchen Sink, a blacklist script about an alien invasion, and the small-town teenagers who have to join forces with vampires and zombies to defeat the unwelcome visitors. Rescue Me star Denis Leary recently joined the cast as well, which currently includes Mackenzie Davis (Smashed) and Nicholas Braun (The Perks of Being a Wallflower). Robbie Pickering, who wrote and directed the SXSW indie Natural Selection, is set to direct the project. [The Wrap]
