Penn Badgley to Star in New Movie

by 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.

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
