Cam Gigandet Set For Plush

Catherine Hardwicke's new thriller

Though it seems to be taking a while to come together, Catherine Hardwicke is now gathering the cast she needs for her new thriller, Plush. Variety is reporting that she’s signed someone she’s worked with before, as Twilight's Cam Gigandet is now to play the male lead.

Gigandet joins Emily Browning in the movie, which has been described as an erotic thriller set in LA. Now we have a few more plot details, with word that Gigandet will play a psychic psychologist who can dig into his patients’ minds and see their memories. Quite handy for helping them battle their past demons, then, though not without its dangers. Browning will be a young woman who possesses similar powers, and we’re guessing they’ll be both under threat and under the covers at various points in the film.

There’s no word on when Hardwicke will kick off shooting, but she’ll be working from a script she co-wrote with Artie Nelson.

Gigandet was most recently seen in The Roommate, Priest and Trespass. Since those, he’s been busy: the actor has already shot drug drama Free Ride, action pic Red Sky and Navy SEAL thriller Code Name: Geronimo.
