Image Entertainment, Inc. and Graymark Productions announced that actress Kristin Cavallari has been signed to co-star in Fingerprints, which has started filming in Oklahoma City. Fingerprints will be Cavallari's first film role.
The film is based on the widely publicized urban legend that took place 50 years ago in a small Texas town, where a school bus filled with children was hit by a train killing everyone on-board. The ghosts of the children are supposedly still in the area where the accident took place. It is said that if a car is put in neutral on the railroad tracks, the children will push the car off the tracks, leaving only their ghostly fingerprints behind. The movie centers around a troubled teenager who discovers the gruesome truth behind the legend.
In addition to Cavallari (Laguna Beach, Veronica Mars), headlining the cast is Leah Pipes (Malcolm in the Middle), Josh Henderson (Yours, Mine & Ours, 8 Simple Rules), Andrew Lawrence (Lilo & Stitch: The Series, Tucker) as well as veteran actors Lou Diamond Philips, Sally Kirkland and Geoffrey Lewis.
Harry Basil is directing the film, from a screenplay written by brothers Brian and Jason Cleveland, who are also producing.
"Kristin Cavallari is one of today's rising young stars, and she will lead a terrific cast to make 'Fingerprints' a memorable film," said Barry Gordon, senior vice president of worldwide programming of Image Entertainment.
