Cast Joins Stepfather Remake

ON

Nip/Tuck star terrorizes family

Dylan Walsh, best known for his turn in the FX series “Nip/Tuck,” Sela Ward and Penn Badgley are set to star in The Stepfather, a Screen Gems remake of the 1987 thriller. Adrianne Palicki is in negotiations to round out the cast.

The story centers on a teenage boy who discovers his soon-to-be stepfather may be a psycho who murdered his previous family. Badgley would play the son, a gender reversal from the original film in which Jill Schoelen played a daugher who suspected her step-pop was up to no good.

Palicki would play the boy’s girlfriend and Walsh plays the title role originated by “Lost” star Terry O’Quinn. O’Quinn played the role in a 1989 sequel as well.

The redo will be directed by Nelson McCormick (“Prom Night”) from a script by J.S. Cardone. Greg Mooradian and Mark Morgan of Maverick Films will produce.

Production is aimed to start in March or April.
