“The X-Files” star Mitch Pileggi is set to join Claudia Lee (“Hart of Dixie”), Katharine Isabelle (“Hannibal”), Miranda Rae Mayo (“Pretty Little Liars”), Christy Carlson Romano (“Kim Possible”), Toby Hemingway (“Black Swan”) and Luke Baines (“Saving Mr. Banks”) in the indie thriller “The Girl in the Photographs,” which also stars Kal Penn and Kenny Wormald, TheWrap has learned.
Lee will play the title character of Colleen, a bored small-town girl trying to distance herself from an abusive boyfriend when two serial killers begin leaving her photo at the scene of their brutal crimes.
The project is the first from Kuwait-based Al-Ghanim Entertainment, a film financing and production company. Production is currently under way in Canada, and CAA is selling North American rights.
Pileggi is a genre icon who previously starred in Craven’s classic 80’s film “Shocker.” He’s also set to reprise his role as Walter Skinner in the upcoming “X-Files” reboot on FOX. He’s repped by Pakula/King & Associates.
Lee is repped by Paradigm and Joanne Horowitz Management, while Isabelle is repped by The Characters Talent Agency and Play Management. Hemingway is repped by Innovative Artists and 3 Arts, and Baines is repped by 42 and Radius Entertainment. Carlson Romano is repped by CESD and Brad Stokes Management.
