Loss of Wife and Job Lead to ‘Crawlspace’

Michael Vartan

Deadline reports that “Bates Motel” star Michael Vartan, pictured, has landed the male lead in Crawlspace, the New Line genre film that’s directed by Phil Claydon (Vampire Killers) and produced by Peter Safran and Rick Alvarez.

Vartan will play a widower with a daughter who gets remarried and, after going through a rough patch of unemployment, gets the opportunity for a new start in a new house in the suburbs. Trouble is the house has a very disturbing secret from the past that rears up.

Principal photography is set to begin March 24, 2014 in Los Angeles.
