Ventimiglia and Smith Join Pathology

ON

Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes”) and Lauren Lee Smith have been cast as the leads in Lakeshore’s thriller “Pathology.”

Commercials director Mark Scholermann is making his feature directorial debut, says Variety. Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will produce with Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

The story is about a group of med students who hatch a scheme to see who can commit the perfect crime — one that even a fellow pathologist couldn’t unravel.

Also joining the cast are Johnny Whitworth (Factory Girl, 3:10 to Yuma) and Alyssa Milano (“Charmed”).

Production will begin in early May in Los Angeles. MGM will distribute the film in the U.S. in late fall. Lakeshore will be selling international rights at Cannes.
