Sundance breakout star Brit Marling (Political Disasters) has been cast in Arbitrage, Movieline has revealed.

Marling, who replaces Eva Green (Casino Royale), will star opposite Susan Sarandon (The Lovely Bones) and Richard Gere (Pretty Woman) in the financial drama.

A troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire makes an error that forces him to turn to an unlikely person for help.

Writer/director Nicholas Jarecki (The Informers) is at the helm, with production expected to commence in April.

Marling can be seen in Another Earth and Sound of My Voice, both of which are due for release later this year.
