Two More Join Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lovely Bones’

Two key Lovely Bones roles have been filled with young actresses from New Zealand, according to Film Ick. Lindsey Salmon, the big sister of murdered Susie, is to be played by Rose McIver. A complete newcomer, however, is Carolyn Dando who has won the role of Ruth, a schoolgirl who befriends the boyfriend of the deceased. The duo join Rachel Weisz, Ryan Gosling, Saoirse Ronan, Stanley Tucci and Susan Sarandon in the film, which gets underway in five or six weeks. Peter Jackson’s next is a much smaller character driven story narrated by the spirit of a young girl who was raped and murdered as she watches her family and friends deal with her death. She also watches her murderer and follows the events in his life.
