“American Idol” runner-up Katharine McPhee is set to make her feature film debut as the star of the indie dark romantic comedy The Last Caller, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by Michael Albanese, the story is described as a coming-of-age tale about a self-obsessed woman (McPhee) who searches for love, hope and meaning during a few random events with other urban seekers.
“Caller” is produced by Hit and Run Productions’ Hilary Shor (Children of Men) and Zenith Film Group’s Nicholas Cokas. Robert Hawk (Chasing Amy) will serve as associate producer.
The film’s budget will fall in the $5 million-$8 million range, and shooting is scheduled to start in the fall in and around New York.
