Katie Cassidy (pictured; Taken, A Nightmare on Elm Street) will topline as the title character in the John Suits-directed mind-bending thriller feature, The Scribbler, which begins production this week in downtown Los Angeles. Starring alongside Cassidy will be Garret Dillahunt (The Burning, Last House on the Left, Looper, Winter’s Bone), Michelle Trachtenberg (Black Christmas, “Gossip Girl”), Eliza Dushku (Wrong Turn, “Dollhouse”), Gina Gershon (Killer Joe), Michael Imperioli (The Lovely Bones), Billy Campbell (“The Killing”), and Sasha Grey (The Girfriend Experience). Rounding out the supporting cast are Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede), Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”), and T.V. Carpio (Limitless).
“‘The Scribbler’ concerns Suki (Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn”, an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured”, she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?”
Daniel Schaffer adapted the screenplay adapted from his own graphic novel, which Image Comics originally published in 2006 and is going to be re-released by First Comics in conjunction with the film’s opening.
