Katie Cassidy Loves 'Nerds'


In real life, she may prefer the company of Jesse McCartney, but on-screen Katie Cassidy's got a thing for "Nerds."

The "Click" co-star and daughter of David Cassidy has signed on for a lead role in Fox Atomic's unnecessary remake of "Revenge of the Nerds," set to be produced by McG, with an all-star roster of co-producers including Adam Brody ("The O.C.") and Bret Harrison ("The Loop").

Kyle Newman will direct.

According to Variety, Cassidy will play Suzy Stone, wildly popular head of the Pi Delta Pi sorority.

Cassidy also plays a sorority gal in her next big screen effort, the Dimension remake of "Black Christmas." Mostly notably, the 19-year-old actress has also signed on to play Lucy Ewing in the upcoming "Dallas" movie, a part craved by oodles of A-list young starlets from Lindsay Lohan to Jessica Simpson.
