At the end of the Entertainment Weekly piece on ballet in film is this news tidbit:

And finally, news broke today that Chloë Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, and Bailee Madison have joined Kristen Bell in Dance of the Mirlitons, a film about a curvy ballerina with a stage mom (Bell) who attempts to make it in the tough business. (Producer Daniel Dubiecki’s rep confirms The Hollywood Reporter‘s report with EW; Madison will play the ballerina, Moretz will play the class’ ace pupil, and Haley will play a sadistic Russian ballet teacher in the film, which will be helmed by Evan Greenberg.)

Does anyone know anything about the actors involved?

Jackie Earle Haley was "Moocher", one of the four townie friends in "Breaking Away". (He's on the far right.) He was the one who got married in the film. He was nominated for an Oscar in 2006 for "Little Children". His current photo in IMDB makes him look more plausible as a sadistic Russian ballet teacher.

Kristen Bell played the eponymous character in the cult series 'Veronica Mars' and I believe she is the narrator of 'Gossip Girl'. Bell is blonde, petite and perky and IMO doesn't have a huge range as an actress. She was very good in the first season or two of 'Veronica Mars' but once the role had to grow-up and become more subtle/nuanced, it fell apart for me. I'm surprised she's being cast as a mother already. She's probably in her late twenties and looks younger.
