Actress Katie Aselton, best known for her comedic role as Jenny MacArthur on FX’s fantasy-football series “The League,” is set to star and direct an all-girl thriller written by husband and “League” costar MarK Duplass (Cyrus).

Black Rock follows a group of vacationing girlfriends as their private island getaway turns horrific when they discover that they’re not alone. Joining Aselton on screen are Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns) and Lake Bell (Burning Palms).

Says Aselton (via press release):

I grew up watching classic suspense films and have long had the idea of making a girl-based thriller where the threat to the characters is very real, and the audience is left with the terrifying thought ‘this could happen to me.

Exploring that kind of movie excites me as a filmmaker, and I am elated to have Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth alongside me on the journey.

Aselton made her directorial debut last year with the relationship comedy The Freebie. The 32-year-old former beauty queen will also return for season three of “The League.”

Bosworth recently wrapped Sony Screen Gems’ remake of Sam Peckinpah’s controversial 1971 home-invasion thriller Straw Dogs, in which she’s rumored to go nude. Bell, who starred on NBC’s sea-monster series “Surface,” will next be seen in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy.
