Lucy Hale will be taking a vacation on Fantasy Island. The actress is currently in talks to join the cast of the big screen adaptation of the 1970s/80s television series.
According to The Wrap, Hale’s character will be named Melanie, though no other information is forthcoming. More than likely, she will be one of the visitors to the magical island that can make your fantasies come true, though often with unintended and unforeseen consequences.
Michael Pena is set to star as Mr. Roarke, the mysterious and convivial host of the island resort as originated by Ricardo Montalban on the classic television series. Dave Bautista is also in talks to join the film. Jeff Wadlow is set to direct.
This will mark Hale’s second teaming with Wadlow after the actress appeared in the director’s horror film Truth Or Dare earlier this year.
