Harry Potter alums Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) and Julie Christie (Madame Rosmerta), Twilight star Billy Burke (Charlie Swan), Victoria Madsen (Candyman), Lukas Haas (Inception), and Michael Shanks (TV’s Stargate series, Smallville) round out the cast. The film is being directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who helmed the first Twilight movie.
