Katharine McPhee Set For Dennis Lehane-Penned Crime Thriller Depravity

At some point in 1997 was the last time I’ve seen Jim Gillespie’s dreadful horror ripoff I Know What You Did Last Summer, a film that has itself been ripped off in some way or another time and again. And while the upcoming thriller Depravity has enough talent behind it to save it from being anywhere similar to that brand of routine drivel, I was still reminded of it, and that’s half of the battle.

Even more easy comparisons could be made about a pretty and popular leading lady, but I’ll leave the similarities alone. Deadline reports actress Katharine McPhee is attached to star in Depravity, which will be the directorial debut for Paul Tamasy, who was the screenwriter for such disparate movies as The Fighter and Air Bud. The script was written by best-selling author Dennis Lehane, whose novels Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River were adapted into critically acclaimed films.

Depravity follows a group of roommates who accidentally kill a man that they think is a thrill killer. The act “sends the group into a world unhinged from any moral compass, one in which they may be forced to confront not only the evil around them but the evil within them as well.” Usually I like to summarize a film’s plotline, but that sounded like it was written with such earnestness that I can hardly attempt to mess it up. McPhee will play a twentysomething-year-old scapegoat for the group. Doesn’t sound like a huge role, or a very complicated movie, but we’ll see.

After a few years of appearing in films such as Shark Night 3D and Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, McPhee hit the spotlight in the NBC musical drama Smash, which was cancelled earlier this year. Lehane, meanwhile, wrote the short story and screenplay for Michel Roskam’s crime drama Animal Rescue, which is set to hit theaters next year.

    Plus, selling off old decorations and buying new ones is
    a good way to rack up some easy experience points without having
    to wait for the next harvesting and planting cycle. Make fast work
    of them both and bound to place two after you might be done.
    These units are almost Zergs, since they have the ability to burrow underground at a moments notice and pop up in the midst of a
    rush of armor, decimating it.

    But other flourishes fall flat, like the green scorekeeper lady, or the way
    a teammate may disappear for a few moments. Davis scored on three straight blocks
    at one point, causing coach Lauren Di – Sabatino to burn a timeout
    with the score 21-16. ) in which you must
    jump over multiple obstacles and enemies to compete each level.
