Katie Cassidy (TAKEN) will topline as the title character in the mind-bending thriller feature, THE SCRIBBLER, which begins production this week in downtown Los Angeles. Starring alongside Cassidy will be Garret Dillahunt (WINTER’S BONE), Michelle Trachtenberg (Gossip Girl), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse), Gina Gershon (KILLER JOE), Michael Imperioli (THE LOVELY BONES), Billy Campbell (The Killing), and Sasha Grey (THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE).

THE SCRIBBLER concerns Suki (Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn”, an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured”, she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?
NAA Founder Gabriel Cowan will produce alongside NightSky productions Ken F. Levin. Caliber’s Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller will executive produce the film alongside NAA’s Kerry Johnson. Daniel Schaffer adapted the screenplay adapted from his own graphic novel, which Image Comics originally published in 2006 and is going to be re-released by First Comics in conjunction with the film’s opening.
