Sony Screen Gems has released the first official trailer for its upcoming super-sexy girl-on-girl thriller The Roommate. The film is an update of the 1992 Bridgett Fonda thriller Single White Female and stars “Gossip Girl” Leighton Meester as an emotionally unstable college coed obsessed with her dorm-mate, played by “Friday Night Lights” regular Minka Kelly.
I gotta say, in a time when vampires and zombies rule the box office, it’s kind of cool to see an old-school thriller where the antagonist is flesh-and-blood. I, for one can identify with the horrors of sharing space with a stranger. In college, my roommate snaked my medicinal cocaine. I felt so violated and helpless.
Of course, the film’s lesbian overtones don’t hurt its appeal either. Neither does the promise of a kinky sex scene between Meester and Matt Lanter (Sorority Row).
The Roommate is directed by Christian E. Christiansen and costars Billy Zane (Dead Calm), Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Katerina Graham (“The Vampire Diaries”), Alyson Michalka (”Hellcats”), Lauren Storm (Whore), Danneel Harris (”One Tree Hill”), and Frances Fisher (”Eureka”).
