Dylan Walsh Is ‘The Stepfather’

Nip/Tuck's Dylan Walsh will star in the remake of the 1987 thriller The Stepfather. According to Variety, Sela Ward and Penn Badgley will round out the family tree, with Adrianne Palicki also in negotiations to join the horror project.

The film is a Hitchcockian-style suspense yarn that revolves around a teenage boy's relationship with his psychotic stepfather. Things take a turn for the worse when the boy (Badgley) discovers that his new dad may have killed his previous family. Ward will star as the mom, while Palicki will play Badgley's girlfriend.

Nelson McCormick is directing this new version of the cult classic. The project will begin shooting March of 2008.

The Stepfather was released October 16th, 2009.
