Irish fashion model-turned-actress Caitriona Balfe is set to join “Teen Wolf” starlet Crystal Reed in Intrepid Pictures’ upcoming psycho-bitch thriller Crush. The Malik Bader-directed film begins production this week in Los Angeles.
Written by Roommate scribe Sonny Mallhi, the film revolves around a popular high school jock who becomes an obsession for the girls around him, including an especially demented admirer. Balfe, seen briefly in this summer’s Super 8, will play the owner of the comic book store where Reed works.
Crush also stars Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) as the jock, Sarah Bolger (”The Tudors”) as his long-time friend, Reid Ewing (”Modern Family”) as Reed’s lovesick geek, Camille Guaty (”Las Vegas”) as a sexy teacher, and Saw co-creator and actor Leigh Whannell as a local yogurt shop owner.
