Marie Avgeropoulos joins classically trained actor Taylor Lautner in a movie too absurd to be believed. TRACERS follows a bike messenger (Lautner), who is indebted to the mob, who crashes into a sexy stranger (Avgeropoulos) who introduces him to the thrilling world of parkour. There is a universe where this movie turns out awesome and campy but I’m not sure if that’s the world we live in. Or if I even want it to be. Anyhow, Avgeropoulos will play Nikki, a skater girl who runs with a gang of street criminals. I guess they use parkour for criminal gain? I’m not sure how that works, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious. There’s apparently a love triangle thrown into the mix too and if that makes you roll your eyes you haven’t seen a Lautner movie.
Matt Johnson wrote the script that Daniel Benmayor will direct. Mary Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will produce.
Avgeropoulos’ sticking with the CW by starring in the upcoming “The Hundred” despite “Cult” failing to find an audience. CW is nothing if not optimistic.
She is repped by AKA Talent Agency.
