Leighton Meester Set to “Cowgirl” Up

Good news, Leighton Meester fans! Production Weekly reports that the Gossip Girl beauty has signed on to co-star in the upcoming movie Cowgirl Bandits, alongside Pineapple Express actress Amber Heard (who stars as the female lead in the upcoming Johnny Depp movie The Rum Diary).

The film is described as “a young version of Thelma & Louise,” so expect a lot of girls-behaving-badly action. Jess Manafort, who worked with Heard on 2007’s The Beautiful Ordinary, is set to direct.
