Jessica Biel will play Sammy Joyce, a socially awkward small-town receptionist who has a nail accidentally shot into her head by a clumsy workman, eliciting wild sexual urges. The uninsured Joyce goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured. She meets an immoral congressman (Gyllenhaal) who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade as Joyce heads into her own career in politics. Based on the novel "Sammy's Hill" by Kristin Gore. The film suffered an array of shutdowns because of cash-flow problems. All but one scene -- the crucial one where the nail goes into Biel's character's head -- was completed by Russell, but the movie sat on the shelf as Ron Tutor, another rights holder, tried unsuccessfully to get Russell to finish it. The director washed his hands of the project in 2010.
