Casting Net: Joey King to play Zach Braff's daughter; Plus, Brendan Gleeson, more

• Joey King has a pretty stellar career for a 13-year-old.

Soon, she’ll be tormented by demon spirits in The Conjuring, too. It’s no wonder that Zach Braff wanted her in his Kickstarter project Wish I Was Here.

• Chloë Moretz just can’t stay away from the macabre. The Kick-Ass 2 star is currently in talks to join the adaptation of (former EW writer) Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places.

Alternating between flashbacks to the time when the murder and conviction took place and the present, Moretz would play the character of Diondra Wertzner — Ben’s girlfriend in the flashbacks. Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key) is set to direct. [Deadline]

Jennifer Garner is in talks to join Kevin Costner in Ivan Reitman’s football dramedy Draft Day.
