Nina Dobrev (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” CW’s “The Vampire Diaries”) will star in and executive produce the indie film “Sick Girl,” according to Deadline.

The independent comedy will mark the feature film writing and directing debut for Jennifer Cram, the longtime casting associate who most recently was casting director on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.”

Wendi McLendon-Covey, Brandon Mychal Smith, Sherry Cola, Stephanie Koenig, Hayley Magnus, Dan Bakkedahl and Ray McKinnon will co-star in the femme-centric comedy centered on Wren Pepper (Dobrev, who starred on the now-canceled CBS comedy “Fam” this past season), who feels that she and her lifelong friends have grown apart. A little white lie from Wren begins to tear that community apart, taking them all on an unexpected ride.

“The truest relationships of my life have been those of my close girlfriends,” said Cram, per Deadline. “I’m grateful to be able share an inside glimpse to this incredible bond with audiences everywhere.”

From privately financed Los Angeles-based production company Whereabouts Unknown, “Sick Girl” is being produced by Sean McEwen, Cassidy Lunnen, John Papsidera and Jessica Wilde. Takashi Cheng is executive producer with Dobrev.
