Twilight’s Rachelle Lefevre has joined the cast of the TV series adaptation of Stephen King’s Under the Dome. Per The Hollywood Reporter:
Lefevre will play Julia, an investigative reporter who just moved from Chicago to Chester’s Mill with her husband, a doctor at the town’s medical center. She’s the editor of the town’s local paper and is intrigued after learning of multiple deliveries of propane gas to a nearby warehouse. She’s baffled by the appearance of the strange dome but more concerned with the whereabouts of her mysteriously missing husband.
Niels Arden Oplev, who helmed the original Swedish version of “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” will direct the first segment. Britt Robertson, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford, Alex Koch, Jolene Purdy, Rachelle Lefevre, Mike Vogel, Dean Norris, Aisha Hinds and Nicholas Strong star. Lost writer Brian K. Vaughan is the shows creator.
The Steven Spielberg produced adaptation of Stephen King’s Under the Dome will begin on CBS on 24th June.
Here is the synopsis for the show:
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when — or if — it will go away.
