In "Collaborator," Donovan plays Robert Longfellow, a famous playwright whose new play has bombed and whose marriage is becoming rocky. When his childhood neighbor, a right-wing ex-con who still lives with his mother reappears in Robert's life, the playwright finds himself held hostage at gunpoint in his childhood home.

Donovan (above, left) has appeared in "Agent Cody Banks," "Insomnia" and "The Haunting in Connecticut," among other films.

"Collaborator" is produced by Julien Favre, Ted Hope, Luca Matrundola and Pascal Vaguelsy.
