The drama flick, ‘White Bird In A Blizzard,’ added Jacob Artist to its cast on Monday. Earlier this week, ItsontheGrid reported Dale Dickey joined the cast. Angela Bassett, Shiloh Fernandez, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe and Shailene Woodley are all attached to star. Gregg Araki will helm the flick, as well as write alongside Emmanuel Finkiel. Julie Peyr is also attached as scribe for the script, which follows Katrina Connor, a typical overweight 16-year-old. She is preoccupied with sex and dating and eager to separate from parents she sees as terminally boring. Then, on a frigid January day, her mother vanishes, and Kat begins to wonder if her mother simply took off, or if there is a more horrifying reason for her disappearance.
