“90210” star McCord has signed on for the revenge thriller “Scorned,” alongside “Titanic” star Billy Zane and Viva Bianca from Starz’s “Spartacus.”

McCord and Zane will play Sadie and Kevin, a couple whose romantic weekend at a lake house takes a sideways turn when a text message from Sadie’s best friend (played by “Bianca”) to Kevin reveals a lurid love affair between the two, sending Sadie on a vengeance spree.

“Scorned” will be directed by Mark Jones, the creator and director of the beloved “Leprechaun” horror-movie series.

Jones likened the project to “sophisticated” thrillers such as “Fatal Attraction” and “Misery.”

“Having done horror with comedy, I wanted to delve into something more sophisticated along the lines of ‘Fatal Attraction’ and ‘Misery,’ and develop a multi-dimensional, twisted character in our lead villain (McCord), who I feel brings an original and incredibly unique take on her character,” Jones said.

Lightning Entertainment will handle international sales of the film, with Lightning’s Audrey Delaney and Marc Bienstock executive-producing. Lightning president Robert Beaumont and Seth Willenson are also executive-producing.

Lance Thompson of Portsmouth Pictures, and Charles Ison and Martin Sprock of Horse Head Pictures are producing.
