With “Smash” coming to an end, Katharine McPhee is looking to make the transition from the small screen to the silver one with Depravity, a suspense thriller that arrives with a pretty decent pedigree.
Deadline is reporting that McPhee will topline the psychological thriller Depravity from a script written by bestselling author Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Shutter Island, Gone Baby Gone) with Paul Tamasy (co-writer of The Fighter) slated to make his directorial debut.
The film centers on “a group of roommates [who] accidentally kill an innocent man they thought was a thrill killer. It sends the group into a world unhinged from any moral compass, one in which they may be forced to confront not only the evil around them but the evil within them as well. McPhee stars as a gorgeous twentysomething the group tries to scapegoat.”
The film is being produced by Dorothy Aufiero and Todd Eckert.
No word on any additional casting as of yet, but I’m getting a Shallow Grave vibe off of this one.
