A whole new side of Betty Cooper was revealed last night on Riverdale, and now the actress who plays the Archie Comics character in the CW series has added a whole new role to her resume.
Lili Reinhart has joined the Mélanie Laurent-directed Galveston to star alongside Ben Foster and Elle Fanning, I’ve learned. Riverdale‘s Betty Cooper will play Tiffany, the near-adult daughter Fanning’s character gave up years beforehand for adoption.
In the pic based on True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto’s 2010 novel, Foster portrays a New Orleans debt-collector who is trying to avoid being killed by his crime boss and goes on the run with a prostitute, played by Fanning. Reinhart’s character is also after Roy in a search to find out her own past.
Pizzolatto penned the screenplay for Galveston, which is set to start production next month.
