Hoping to continue her winning streak in the genre business, Sarah Michelle Gellar has signed to star in the Hitchcockian thriller Addicted, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Yari Film Group will finance the film, to be produced by Yari, Vertigo's Doug Davison and Roy Lee and Spitfire Pictures' Guy East and Nigel Sinclair. Swedish filmmakers Joel Bergvall and Simon Sandquist will direct the film, set for an October production start. The duo is signed to direct the Warner Bros. Pictures big-screen adaptation of DC Comics' "Books of Magic." "Addicted" centers on a woman whose husband and brother-in-law both end up in a coma after an accident. When the brother awakes, claiming to be her husband, she must try to understand the reality, suspecting something more sinister is at work.
