“90210” and Excision star AnnaLynne McCord has signed on for the revenge thriller Scorned alongside Titanic star Billy Zane and Viva Bianca from Starz’s “Spartacus.”
Per The Wrap, McCord and Zane will play Sadie and Kevin, a couple whose romantic weekend at a lake house takes a sideways turn when a text message from Sadie’s best friend (played by Bianca) to Kevin reveals a lurid love affair between the two, sending Sadie on a vengeance spree. The director is Mark Jones, the creator and director of the Leprechaun horror-movie series, who co-wrote the screenplay with Sadie Katz.
Jones likened the project to “sophisticated” thrillers such as Fatal Attraction and Misery: “Having done horror with comedy, I wanted to delve into something more sophisticated along the lines of Fatal Attraction and Misery and develop a multi-dimensional, twisted character in our lead villain (McCord), who I feel brings an original and incredibly unique take on her character.”
Lightning Entertainment will handle international sales of the film, with Lightning’s Audrey Delaney and Marc Bienstock executive producing. Lightning president Robert Beaumont and Seth Willenson are also executive producing. Lance Thompson of Portsmouth Pictures and Charles Ison and Martin Sprock of Horse Head Pictures are producing.
