James Purefoy Joins Kevin Williamson's New Project for Fox
As if we weren't excited enough about Kevin Williamson's still untitled new project for Fox TV, which stars Kevin Bacon, now comes word as to whom Bacon will be facing off against. Read on for the details!
Per Deadline, James Purefoy (John Carter, Resident Evil, "Rome") has signed on for the second starring role in the series from Warner Bros. TV and Williamson’s studio-based Outerbanks Entertainment. It's described as an edge-of-the-seat thriller about Joe Carroll (Purefoy), a diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers, and the retired FBI profiler (Bacon) who finds himself in the middle of it.
Marcos Siega ("The Vampire Diaries", "Dexter") is set to direct the pilot, written and executive produced by Williamson, creator of the Scream horror movie franchise and co-creator/executive producer of The CW’s "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Secret Circle".
Like Bacon, Purefoy was among the most sought-after actors this pilot season. He was holding four offers when he picked Williamson's. The project may have had extra appeal because of the fact that, if it goes to series, it will produce 15 episodes a season instead of the standard 22, which was also part of Bacon’s deal to star in it.
