Amy Smart is set to star in Lake Dead director George Bessudo’s soon-to-shoot supernatural thriller Glimmer. The insanely sexy 34-year-old Cali native will play Annie Tuttle, a married woman attempting to keep unborn child safe from a mysterious entity.
The film’s synopsis reads:
When 16-year-old Annie Tuttle takes a walk at her lakefront home, she spots a young girl standing on the ice-covered lake. As Lucy falls through the ice, Annie hurries to rescue her and sees a figure at the center of the lake; the figure seems to shimmer and disappear before her eyes.
Nine years later Annie is happily married to Jack Cole. Annie gets a letter which reads: “It’s going to kill you. Come alone”. The letter leads her to the Granger Institute and Lucy Talbot – the girl from the lake. Lucy explains that the GLIMMER will never let her live.
Outside Annie meets up with Gabe, the local deputy and a former boyfriend. In Lucy’s room Annie and Gabe discover two pictures and a page torn from a book dating back to 1698; in them the figure of Eldridge Peck appears, a man executed for being a witch. Meanwhile Annie has discovered a link between the Peck family and her husband, Jack.
Annie must race against time to save herself and her unborn child from the GLIMMER.
So far, the only other name attached to star in Glimmer is Canadian actor and Resident Evil: Afterlife heavy Shawn Roberts. As the cast begins to fill out, I hope Bessudo remembers to once again call on his very attractive Lake Dead starlet Kelsey Wedeen.
Her genre creds include Alexandre Aja’s Mirrors (in which she turns in one of horror’s most disturbing death scenes), the zombie-apocalypse frightener Seventh Moon, Dee Snyder’s Strangeland, New Line’s Butterfly Effect, 1997’s Campfire Tales, and Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers.
