Britt Robertson, probably best known from The First Time, will star as the lead in an upcoming indie drama Undiscovered Gyrl, which comes from Allison Burnett.
And when I say – it comes from, I mean that Burnett will direct the whole thing, and the movie will be based on his own novel of the same name that was published by Vintage Books in 2009.
The movie will center on an emotionally-troubled and imaginative high school graduate who decides to take a year off before college and start a blog as her life begins to spiral out of control. As you already guess, Robertson is on board to play that girl, named Katie Kampenfelt, and just in case you want to hear even more details about this project, here’s an official synopsis for Bunett’s novel:
Beautiful, wild, funny, and lost, Katie Kampenfelt is taking a year off before college to find her passion. Ambitious in her own way, Katie intends to do more than just smoke weed with her boyfriend, Rory, and work at the bookstore. She plans to seduce Dan, a thirty-two-year-old film professor.

Britt Robertson has landed a new gig!
The 22-year-old actress just signed on to star in the American DreamWorks Pictures remake of the 2011 French-Canadian film Starbuck.
In the film, Britt will work alongside Vince Vaughn, who will play her dad.
Starbuck is about a troubled teen named Kristen (Britt Robertson) who is one of 533 children that Vaughn’s character fathered through sperm donation.
“White Rabbit” centers on a bullied high school teen (Nick Krause of “The Descendants”) whose nightmares begin to affect his waking life. Robertson will be playing his girlfriend, with Sam Trammell of “True Blood” set to play his father.
Britt Robertson recently wrapped her recurring role as Cassie Blake on the now-canceled CW drama, “The Secret Circle.” She recently scowled her way through the dysfunctional family drama, “The Family Tree,” and screamed with the best of them as Marnie Cooper in Wes Craven’s “Scream 4.”
Robertson also recently earned a lot of buzz for her turn in the high school romance, “The First Time,” which made a splash at Sundance earlier this year. The film, which was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics, is still without a U.S. release date.
“White Rabbit” will commence with production in New Orleans later this month under the direction of Tim McCann.
