Ashley Greene has joined the cast of comedy Staten Island Summer.

The Twilight actress is to play a mobster’s daughter in the coming-of-age summer romcom from the Saturday Night Live team, director Rhys Thomas and head writer Colin Jost, Deadline reported.

The film follows friends Danny and Frank who sign up to work as poolside lifeguards the summer after high school graduation, as they work out what they are going to do with their lives.

Ashley will play a member of the pool club who the boys fall for, at the risk of incurring the wrath of her overprotective gangster father. The film is due to start production later this month in New York.
