The Girl in the Photographs Casts Up; Wes Craven Reunites with Shocker Star


Excited for Wes Craven’s latest project, The Girl in the Photographs? Fan of Shocker, one of his earlier films? Then we have some really good news for you.

The Wrap is reporting that Horace Pinker himself, Mitch Pileggi, is set to join Claudia Lee (“Hart of Dixie”), Katharine Isabelle (“Hannibal”), Miranda Rae Mayo (“Pretty Little Liars”), Christy Carlson Romano (“Kim Possible”), Toby Hemingway (Black Swan) and Luke Baines (Saving Mr. Banks) in the indie thriller, which also stars Kal Penn and Kenny Wormald.

Horror legend Wes Craven (Scream) is executive producing the film, which is being directed by his protégé Nick Simon, who co-wrote the script with Oz Perkins and Robert Morast.

Lee will play the title character of Colleen, a bored small-town girl trying to distance herself from an abusive boyfriend when two serial killers begin leaving her photos of their brutal crimes.

Colleen’s life isn’t going anywhere. The small town natural beauty is bored with her dead end job at a grocery store and is ready to distance herself from her abusive boyfriend. In the midst of her turmoil, a pair of deranged serial killers begins leaving her photos of their mutilated victims. Her chance to escape comes in the form of Peter Hemmings (Penn), a hipster celebrity photographer who has traveled back to his hometown of Spearfish, South Dakota, with a pack of models, intent on copying the killers’ intense and unapologetic artistry and use it for an important ad campaign.

When he learns Colleen is their muse, Peter resolves to make her his own and use her as the centerpiece of a photo campaign in Los Angeles. But before Colleen can leave her old life behind, she must contend with the desires of her murderous stalkers, who have chosen her last night in town to execute their most provocative work to date.
