AnnaLynne McCord (The CW's "90210"), Billy Zane (Titanic) and Viva Bianca (Starz' "Spartacus”) will star in the revenge thriller Scorned, directed by Mark Jones (Leprechaun), who co-wrote the script with Sadie Katz, it was announced today by producers Lance Thompson of Portsmouth Pictures, Charles Ison and Martin Sprock of Horse Head Pictures, executive producer Seth Willenson and Robert Beaumont, executive producer and President of Lightning Entertainment (“Lightning”).

Scorned tells the cautionary tale of Sadie and Kevin (AnnaLynne McCord and Billy Zane), a couple who decide to spend a romantic weekend together at his lake house. But when an unexpected text from her best friend, Jennifer (Viva Bianca), to Kevin, reveals a lurid love affair between the two people closest to her, Sadie becomes a woman scorned and hell bent on revenge.

Mark Jones is the creator and director behind the horror comedy film franchise Leprechaun starring Warwick Davis in the lead role. Jennifer Aniston starred in the first Leprechaun that spawned six films and a recently announced a reboot of the series by Lionsgate and WWE Studios. Jones's other films credits include Rumpelstiltskin, Nightmare Boulevard and Triloquist.

Mark Jones said: "Having done horror with comedy, I wanted to delve into something more sophisticated along the lines of "Fatal Attraction" and "Misery," and develop a multi-dimensional, twisted character in our lead villain (Annalynne McCord), who I feel brings an original and incredibly unique take on her character.

"The intense and escalating script immediately drew us to the project. Mark Jones has crafted an edge-of-your-seat thriller with terrific performances from the cast,” said Beaumont. “The classic revenge tale is a spellbinding blend of love and betrayal that is sure to draw global audiences into theaters and scare them out of their seats!” he continued.

Lightning’s Audrey Delaney and Marc Bienstock are also serving as executive producers on the film.
