Back in the late ’90s, when Mandy Moore first appeared on the pop music scene, I would’ve never predicted she’d still be an active famous person in the early 2010s. Of course, I also dismissed Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, and everyone in ‘NSYNC as one-hit wonders destined to fade into obscurity by about 2001, so that shows what I know.
And now, here I am in 2011 reporting that Moore has signed on for Buried writer Chris Sparling‘s directorial debut, a ghost story titled Falling Slowly. She will be starring opposite Rodrigo Santoro, a.k.a. Paulo from Lost, the homoerotic villain from 300, and Laura Linney’s smoldering love interest from Love, Actually. More details after the jump.
