Laura Ramsey is set to join Amy Smart (Mirrors) in director George Bessudo’s (Lake Dead) upcoming supernatural thriller Glimmer. No word on what role the 28-year-old stunner will play but, even if she was portraying a tree, this movie’s strokevalue watchability factor just went up.
Ramsey’s horror creds include Renny Harlin’s The Covenant, Jim Gillespie’s New Orleans-based frightener Venom, and the 2005 horror-comedy Cruel World (starring Jaime Presley). She is probably best known, however, for her gruesomely tragic turn in 2008’s The Ruins.
The only other name attached to star in Glimmer so far is Canadian actor and Resident Evil: Afterlife heavy Shawn Roberts. Here’s hoping Bessudo remembers to give Lake Dead starlet Kelsey Wedeen a call as he fills out his cast.
We’ll keep ya posted on additional casting and release info as it comes.
There’s a good chance that the new ABC series “Revenge” doesn’t fall into what we normally cover on Clatto, but it does deal with malicious payback—a theme we relate to because we really fucking hate everybody (Except you. You guys are special, and not in a short bus way).
“Everwood” and “Brothers & Sisters” actress Emily VanCamp stars in the series as a young woman out to bring down the wealthy Hamptons set that destroyed her father. Costar Madeleine Stowe, the sexy old-school star of such genre favs as Unlawful Entry, Blink, and 12 Monkeys, spoke about the show’s appeal at the TCA (Television Critics Association).
She later elaborated to Deadline:
We all know that we’re heading toward very interesting times. I don’t know where our country is going to be. But I think the idea of being able to observe these over privileged people who have everything at their fingertips and at their beck and call given a comeuppance might be sort of a vicarious thrill for the audience.
I think everyone’s feeling their lives starting to slip. So to be able to turn on the tube for one hour and see this sort of escapist fantasy that has a really dark heart I think could be satisfying…There’s almost an Upstairs Downstairs quality to what we’re doing on this show.
Stowe plays primary antagonist on the show.
“Revenge” will premiere on ABC on Sept. 21. The show will air Wednesday nights at 10.
