Abigail Spencer Is In Your Eyes
For Joss Whedon's supernatural romance

Abigail Spencer Is In Your Eyes

While she’s had more exposure on TV to date (including a run as one of Don Draper’s more memorable mistresses on Mad Men), Abigail Spencer has seen her film career hit a new gear recently. And according to the actress, she’s landed a lead role on In Your Eyes, produced by legendary workhorse Joss Whedon.

Talking with Vulture, she revealed that she’s scored a role in the film. "It’s my first time doing a project with him, but I’ve always wanted to work with him. I’m so excited to do it." When prompted to spill a few more nuggets, Spencer demurred, probably because she knows Whedon projects come with a thick layer of secrecy and he can spend his Avengers money on assassins to murderlise anyone who lets slip details. All she would say is this: "It’s the most romantic film in the history of time. It’s a supernatural romance." We’re promised more info soon.

Eyes was announced back in October, with Whedon talking it up as the first production from his new company Bellwether Pictures that he won’t personally direct. That job has gone to Brin Hill, who will nonetheless work from a script written by Joss himself. Shooting is set to start next month in LA, and, if the way his Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing was stealthily filmed was any indication, it might all happen in Joss’s garage.

But Spencer herself is also about generating projects: she’s written a romantic comedy called Wrong Number that finds two strangers brought together by a random missed call. And she’s now secured producer backing from James Franco, who Spencer just worked with on Sam Raimi’s Oz, The Great And Powerful.

She'll next be seen in This Means War and surfing drama Of Men And Mavericks.
