MTV is really enjoying its run in with the horror genre which began officially several years ago with the original My Super Psycho Sweet 16. Word of another project has just hit the wire, and we continue to be perplexed by when exactly we can tune in to the network to actually hear music.
According to Variety, Victoria Justice (pictured) has been cast in the pilot for MTV’s “Eye Candy.”
She’ll be playing Lindy, a beautiful but reclusive hacker whose blog exposes everything from terrorist plots to suspected killers. Convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, Lindy is targeted by a dangerous cyberstalker and believes one of her suitors to be the culprit. When things take a deadly turn, she teams up with the city’s cyber-crime unit to catch the killer.
“Eye Candy,” written by Emmy Grinwis, is based on a novel of the same name by R.L. Stine. Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke is on board to direct and exec produce the drama. Jason Blum is exec producing with his shingle Blumhouse Prods., alongside Yvonne Bernard and Beth Elise Hawk.
