Charisma Carpenter to Topline ‘Vivid’, Landis to Direct ‘Bone’

San Diego Chargers’ cheerleader-turned-actress Charisma Carpenter, who starred in TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angels,” is set to topline Red Sparrow’s Vivid, a $1.2 million budgeted psychological horror set in the English countryside. Brit thesp Ricci Harnett and Justin Hawkins, former outrageous frontman of The Darkness who is perhaps known best for his revealing jumpsuits, will also star in the Reg Traviss film about a New York novelist (Carpenter) who relocates to rural England, only to be rejected by the mistrustful locals and plagued by horrific visions of a massacre at her country manor. Other Red Sparrow projects in development and soon to fly, according to Fischer, include Bone Orchard, a Western with Chinese vampires, which John Landis is attached to helm and youth-orientated horror Cockneys versus Zombies.Charisma Carpenter
