Riley Keough replaced by Odessa Young in Manodrome


Riley Keough has been replaced by Odessa Young in thriller movie ‘Manodrome’.

The 32-year-old actress has stepped aside for the 24-year-old star, who will play character Sal in the movie, but Keough will remain on the project as a producer, and she is delighted Young has come on board.

Keough – who is the granddaughter of Presley – told Deadline: “Odessa is my favourite actor and I am so happy she’s playing Sal.

“She’s brought so much life to the character and we are honoured to have had the opportunity to work with her.”

In June, it was revealed Jesse Eisenberg had been cast in the movie, which will see South African director John Trengrove make his English-language debut.

The thriller tells the story of Ralphie (Eisenberg), an Uber driver and aspiring bodybuilder who is inducted into a masculinity cult and loses his grip on reality when his repressed desires are awakened.

Keough, Gina Gammell and Ryan Zacarias are producing the motion picture for Felix Culpa with Ben Giladi’s Rainmaker Entertainment banner.

Adrien Brody, Ethan Suplee, Phil Ettinger and Georghe Murressean will also star in the film.

Australian actress Young has previously appeared in several movies, including ‘Looking for Grace’ and ‘The Daughter’, in which she starred opposite Geoffrey Rush, Ewen Leslie, Miranda Otto, and Sam Neill.

Young – who also in movie ‘Shirley’ opposite Elisabeth Moss – scooped an AACTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in ‘The Daughter’ for her part of Hedvig Finch, the daughter of Leslie and Otto’s characters.
