Haley Bennett Love

In case you missed it

According to Deadline.com FX decided to air the pilot of “Outlaw Country” that they filmed nearly two years ago as an original movie.

More than two years after FX greenlighted Outlaw Country to pilot and almost a year after the network passed on the Nashville-set drama, the pilot is making it to air. Outlaw Country will air as an FX Original Movie this Friday at 10 PM, following a rebroadcast of Oscar-winning mob drama The Departed. There has been no promotion for the broadcast, which is considered a burnoff. The version that will air is the final pilot that was delivered to FX after it ordered script rewrite and reshoots last summer. I hear the pilot came in long, at about hour an a half, making it suitable to air as a movie. This is a rare public broadcast of a busted pilot not developed as a backdoor movie as they normally never see the light of day. Outlaw Country, a crime thriller/family drama set against the backdrop of Southern organized crime and Nashville royalty, starred Luke Grimes, Haley Bennett, Mary Steenburgen and John Hawkes. Outlaw Country was in the same pilot batch as Powers. FX passed on that pilot too but is keeping its prospects alive with a re-write by Charles H. Eglee.


In April it was confirmed that Sony gave the green light to a super remake of “Sabrina: The Teenage Witch” and now upandcomers.net are suggesting a few actresses for the role. Here’s what they had to say about Haley:

One young actress who has been getting tons of notice lately is Haley Bennett, one time stuck in mindless bad teen movies like “The Hautning of Molly Hartley”. But when Terrence Malick cast her as one of the female leads in his follow-up to “The Tree Of Life”, she suddenly became one to watch. While she’s the oldest on our list at 24, she still looks as youthful as a teenager and is obviously not above playing younger than her age, as she fought to the very end to play teenage horror icon “Carrie” before losing out to Chloe Moretz. Sabrina is a bit of a lighter character, but Bennett has shown comedic chops in her previous work too. Who remembers slutty-spiritual pop star Cora Corman in Hugh Grant rom-com “Music & Lyrics”?


Keep in mind that this is nothing but a personal opinion by this reporter.

V-Magazine posted an interesting snippet about Haley and some picture took by none other than Drew Barrymore. In case you don’t remember, Haley’s first big screen role was as Cora in Music&Lyrics that starred Drew and Hugh Grant. Here’s the article and the picture was added to our gallery!


Music was always a major influence for the singer and actress Haley Bennett, who was born in a small Florida town before her family moved to Ohio. “From a very young age, I remember we would all bond over food, song, and sometimes dance, but I was always shy and quiet,” she remembers. “My turning point was when my grandfather was very ill and asked me to sing to him. I chose ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ Afterwards he wept and told me that no matter what I did in life, I had to let my voice be heard. It was one of the last things he ever said to me.” Barrymore helped Bennett to keep her word, when she costarred with the actress and Hugh Grant in 2007’s Music and Lyrics, playing a precocious teenybopper. “In many ways I feel like she is the reason I am where I am,” Bennett says. And like her famous mentor, this vivacious blonde is going places. Next she’ll appear in Terrence Malick’s new film, Lawless, as part of a star-studded cast including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Ryan Gosling.

OBS:Exclusive pictures will not be posted without tags. Some donated images as well and I ask you not to email about personal pictures of Haley. Haley Bennett Love compromised with Haley directly never to post anything personal and we hope you can understand this.

Chloe Moretz and Haley Bennett Are Top Contenders to Lead CARRIE Remake; Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore Eyed for Mother Role

Now that Kimberly Pierce (Boys Don’t Cry) is set in the director’s chair, producers are working to cast the lead in the MGM/Screen Gems remake of Carrie. Vulture reports that a number of actresses have been shortlisted for the part (including Dakota Fanning and Lily Collins) but Chloe Moretz and Haley Bennett (Marley and Me) are apparently the top two candidates. The remake is said to be more faithful to Stephen King’s source material than Brian De Palma’s 1976 film adaptation, and apparently The Descendants star Shailene Woodley has already passed on the lead role. Hit the jump for more on the new Carrie.
