Emmy Rossum, the naked chick on Showtime’s “Shameless,” is set to star in writer/director Richard LaGravenese’s new romantic horror film Beautiful Creatures. She joins Alice Englert, Jack O’Connell and OK-looking creatures Viola Davis and Emma Thompson.
Adapted from the 1985 novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Beautiful Creatures tells the story of two star-crossed lovers (Englert, O’Connell) who discover dark secrets about their families and town. Rossum plays an evil witch.
Rossum’s creds include Roland Emmerich’s 2004 disaster flick The Day After Tomorrow, Joel Schumacher’s 2004 Phantom of the Opera redo, the 2006 Wolfgang Petersen remake of Poseidon and James Wong’s 2009 magna adaptation Dragonball: Evolution.
Clatto’s favorite former lesbian Anne Heche is set to star in Liddell Entertainment’s The Occult. The 42-year-old looker joins costars Rufus Sewell (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Alycia Debnam-Carey (”Dream Life”).
Directed by Christian Christiansen (The Roommate), The Occult is set in a small commune where the shared 18th birthday of five girls and a sudden murder spree are tied to the prophesied coming of Satan’s daughter.
Heche will soon be seen in Slasher Film’s similarly plotted Nothing to Fear. Her previous genre creds include Volcano, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Gus Van Sant’s 1998 Psycho remake, the kinky psych-thriller Birth, and the 2008 outbreak thriller Toxic Skies.
Alexandra Lesch (pictured above) and her scantly clad attractive costars will make mouths water in director Frank W. Montag’s German frightener Cannibal Diner.
Lesch plays a woman whose tardiness to her younger sister’s birthday party ends up being their only hope for survival when they’re abducted in the woods by cannibals. Watch the trailer; you’ll want to eat them too.
Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has always been a “Person of Interest” to Clatto, but now she’s piquing our curiosity with a new lead role in Screen Gems upcoming abduction thriller No Good Deed.
Directed by Sam Miller from a script by Aimee Lagos (96 Minutes), the film stars Henson as a former D.A. turned stay-at-home mom who finds her family terrorized when she takes in a stranger (Idris Elba) who’s wrecked his car in an accident.
No Good Deed goes into production next month in Atlanta.
