Jon Tenney and Amber Heard have joined the cast of Screen Gems' The Stepfather, a remake of the 1987 horror thriller being produced by Maverick Films.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tenney will play a father trying to reconnect and protect his teenage son, played by Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl). Heard plays Badgley's girlfriend. Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki was in negotiations for Heard's part, but the dates did not work out, according to her reps.
Sela Ward is already on board as Tenney's ex-wife, whose soon-to-be husband (Dylan Walsh of Nip/Tuck) might have murdered his previous family.
