Additionally, Ellen Page (Juno) has been tapped to costar as Carolyn, a morally conflicted creative assistant caught between following the corporate culture of the studio she works for and following Tilda, who has taken a keen interest in her.
Page will next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s awesome-looking thriller Inception.
The Tilda pilot, which is being produced by Bill Condon (Kinsey, Dreamgirls) and Tell Me You Love Me creator Cynthia Mort, is set to start shooting next month in Los Angeles.
