Creepy-Looking Leighton Meester Searching for New 'Roommate'
Psychos need not apply. Does anyone remember that fun trailer for that new cheesy horror flick called The Roommate starring Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly? The one where Meester and Kelly got a little intimate then presume to stalk each other and start dressing alike as well. Yea, I'm not really interested in seeing it either, but I do appreciate a good poster or two. This one, though, may not be that creative, but it's at least an intriguing concept. IMPAwards recently revealed another poster for the movie and it's basically a "Roommate Wanted" ad disguised as a movie poster. Will it actually convince anyone to see this? I doubt it.
Freshman college student Sara (Minka Kelly) finds her safety jeopardized after she's assigned to a dorm room with a new roommate, Rebecca (Leighton Meester), who becomes increasingly obsessed with her.
The Roommate is directed by Danish filmmaker Christian E. Christiansen, of At Night and Zoomers as well as numerous episodes of a Danish TV show called "Mikkel og guldkortet" previously, but this is his first US film. The screenplay was written by Sonny Mallhi, usually an exec producer of other horror flicks delivering his first script. Screen Gems is bringing The Roommate to theaters on February 4th, 2011 early next year.
