REVOLVER GETS SMG FIRED UP
Variety reports that Sarah Michelle Gellar, fresh from the horror hit THE GRUDGE (review), has signed to star in another supernatural chiller, REVOLVER. Focus Features? Rogue Pictures genre division will release the film, in which a successful saleswoman is plagued by nightmares that lead her to uncover the strange circumstances behind another woman?s death 25 years before. Word is that the title alludes to the possibility that Gellar?s character may be the reincarnation of the previous victim. Asif Kapadia, director of the British thriller THE WARRIOR, takes the helm, working from a script by Adam Sussman; shooting is scheduled to begin early next year. Aaron Ryder and his Raygun Pictures company will produce; Ryder is also working on Rogue?s English-language remake of the Korean chiller PHONE.
