by at . Comments

With two seasons of Friday Night Lights and numerous other TV roles under her belt, the lovely Adrianne Palicki is building quite the resume. Now she's added a new movie role to her upcoming list of work projects.

According to Variety, Nip/Tuck's Dylan Walsh will star in the remake of the 1987 thriller The Stepfather. Sela Ward and Penn Badgley (of Gossip Girl fame) will reportedly round out the family tree, with Friday Night Lights beauty Adrianne Palicki also in negotiations to secure a role in the horror project.

The Stepfather is (and will be) an Alfred Hitchcocki-style suspense thriller that revolves around a teenage boy's relationship with his psychotic stepfather.

Things take a turn for the worse when the boy (Penn Badgley) discovers that his new dad may have killed his previous family. Sela Ward will star as the mom, while Adrianne Palicki will play Badgley's girlfriend. Sounds like fun!
