Lea Michelle (“Glee”) is in talks to do McG’s feature film adaptation of the Broadway musical “Spring Awakening”. Michelle played in the stage version. (E! Online)

Selena Gomez is replacing Miley Cyrus in “Hotel Transylvania”. The “Wizards of Waverly Place” star lends her lungs to Dracula’s daughter. (E! Online)

“Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill is in talks to join director Edward Zwick’s “The Great Wall”, which tells the story of the erection of the man-made marvel of the title. (Variety)

Christopher Plummer and Frank Langella are to star in a new HBO film about Muhammad Ali. Stephen Frears (“Tamara Drewe”) will direct “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight,” which “details the legal fight between Ali and the U.S. government when the fighter became a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War.” (The Hollywood Reporter)

Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) and Rita Wilson (“Sleepless in Seattle”) have joined the cast of Jeff ‘Survivor’ Probst’s indie drama “Kiss Me”. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Patton Oswalt (“Caprica”) may join Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. Oswalt would play Walter, a man who helps Walter (Stiller) set up an online dating profile. (Variety)

Scott Eastwood has been thrown a bone (or is it a baseball?) by his famous dad; he’ll have a role in Clint’s “Trouble with the Curve”. (Variety)

Paul Giamatti, Sally Hawkins and Paul Rudd will star in “Junebug” director Phil Morris’s next “Lucky Dog”. The story centers on a pair of French-Canadian conmen pals who, despite being on the outs with each other, hatch a get-rich-quick scheme to sell Christmas trees in NY. (Deadline)

Ellen Barkin (“Switch”) is doing “The New Normal”, a new NBC series from “Glee” creators Ryan Murphy and Allison Adler. The show is “described as a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple, with Andrew Rannells playing one of the guys, and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them start a family. Barkin will play the splashy role of the surrogate’s mother.” (Deadline)

Haley Joel Osment will star in the science-fiction film “I’ll Follow You Down”, about “a scientist who mysteriously disappears after a business trip, only to have his son Erol, played by Osment, make an eerie discovery about his whereabouts, several years later.” (Deadline)

Jon Voight and Elliot Gould, two seasoned vets who know their way around some stout dialogue and meaty material, are joining the cast of the new pilot “Ray Donovan”. Liev Schreiber plays a “fix-it” man who can mend the broken careers or reputations of high-profile celebs or public figures, but can’t seem to fix his own life. Voight (“Heat”) will play Schreiber’s father; Gould (“Ocean’s Eleven”) is a senior partner at a law firm who is Ray’s mentor and confidante.

John Cusack and Evan Peters (“American Horror Story”) have joined the cast of “Adult World”, a new Emma Roberts vehicle currently filming in upstate New York. Scott Coffey directs. “Roberts plays 21-year old Amy Anderson, a recent college graduate with a degree in poetry. Convinced she is the next star in the literary world, moves back with her parents to write poetry — but with a stack of rejection letters, unpaid student loans, and no money, her parents force her to get a “real job.” The only place that will hire her is an erotic bookstore called Adult World. Cusack plays Rat Billings, Amy’s hero and mentor who was one of the greatest poets of the early ’90s.” (Deadline)
