Penn Badgley to Star in New Movie

at . Comments

The success of Gossip Girl is opening up new doors for Penn Badgley.

The latest is a co-starring turn in a remake of the 1987 movie The Stepfather. Nip/Tuck's Dylan Walsh will star in the film, with Variety reporting that Sela Ward and Penn Badgley will round out the family tree.

Adrianne Palicki, currently heating up the screen on Friday Night Lights, is also in negotiations to join the horror project.

The film is a Hitchcockian-style suspense story that revolves around a teenage boy's relationship with his psychotic stepfather. Things take a turn for the worse when the boy (Badgley) discovers that his new dad may have killed his previous family. That's always awkward.
Ward will star as the mom, while Palicki will play Badgley's girlfriend.
