As reported by Deadline, Billie Lourd, daughter of Carrie Fisher and star of Scream Queens, is joining the cast of Booksmart. The movie, which is the feature-film directorial debut for Olivia Wilde, revolves around two overachieving high schoolers who realize that they’re about to graduate without hooking up with their boy-crushes. On prom night, they set out to make up for lost time by cramming years of lost fun into one unforgettable night.
Booksmart is written by Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins, and Katie Silberman. Filming is currently taking place in Los Angeles, California. The cast, along with Lourd, includes Kaitlyn Dever, Skyler Gisondo, and Beanie Feldstein.
Lourd made her TV acting debut in Scream Queens as Chanel #3 on Ryan Murphy’s horror-comedy anthology series. She went on to play Lieutenant Connix in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and then reprised the role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. She also joined the cast of Murphy’s American Horror Story anthology TV series in 2017.
