    This this could be an interesting movie. I have to say that A.J. seems to be making the right choices acting wise: She’s already gotten to work to with one Academy Award winning director (Peter Jackson in “The Lovely Bones”) and Randall Wallace was nominated for an Academy Award for writting “Braveheart.”

    She’s come along way from doing “Cow Belles” for the Disney Channel and the “Sweet 16″ movie for MTV.
