Elisha Cuthbert is in final negotiations to take the title role in My Sassy Girl for Gold Circle Films and helmer Yann Samuell.

Variety says Cuthbert would play a reckless, brazen girl who turns the life of a small-town guy from the Midwest upside down. Production is scheduled to start October 16 in Gotham.

Vic Levin wrote the script, adapting the story from a South Korean romantic comedy.

Gold Circle prexy Paul Brooks is producing alongside Vertigo's Roy Lee and Maverick Films' Mark Morgan.
