Dot: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elisha Cuthbert has committed to star in and co-produce the indie dramatic thriller Dot for helmer Jamie Babbit. Shooting starts in mid-September.
The film is the first project to head before cameras from Burnt Orange, a production unit owned by the University of Texas and advised by WMA that is designed to produce features while allowing UT students the opportunity to work alongside professionals on the set.
Cuthbert stars in the project as a popular and beautiful girl in a typical middle-class family. She seems to have it all until a supposedly deaf orphan teenager comes to live with her family, sparking events that reveal her family is not at all what it seems to be.
