This morning B-D reader Joey M. tipped us off to the trailer for The Stepfather remake, which was directed by Prom Night‘s Nelson McCormick. While I typically shy away from Sony Screen Gems movies (they’re made for kids), seeing Dylan Walsh from “Nip/Tuck” and the sexy, sexy Amber Heard (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) have made it worth checking out. What did you guys think of the trailer? I got a kick out of the “America’s Most Wanted” image that looks nothing like Walsh’s character. Screen Gems has slated the pic for release on October 16th, 2009.
Michael Harding (Penn Badgley) returns home from military school to find his mother (Sela Ward) happily in love and living with her new boyfriend, David (Dylan Walsh). As the two men get to know each other, Michael becomes more and more suspicious of the man who is always there with a helpful hand. Is he really the man of her dreams or could David be hiding a dark side?
