Cornish is 'The Girl'; don't tell Reese Witherspoon
Call it a return to the scene of the crime. Abbie Cornish (that's her armed and dangerous in the Sucker Punch poster) is set to star in The Girl, which lens in Austin in June. The story is about: "Ashley, a young Texan mother who loses her child to foster care and begins smuggling Mexicans across the border. When her quick money scheme fails, she ends up traveling across Mexico with an orphaned eight year old girl from Oaxaca for company." It's a SAG film written and directed by David Riker (La Ciudad).
Cornish was in Austin back in 2006 to film Stop-Loss with Ryan Phillippe, who was then married to Reese Witherspoon. Cornish and Phillippe apparently hooked up and the marriage was kaput. As of last year, the hookup ended, and Cornish appears to be on the market again and back in the Capital City.
And that's the most celebrity gossip you're likely to ever find in my blog!
