Wes Bentley and Rachel Nichols have signed on to star in the stalker thriller, P2 for Summit Entertainment.

The film, written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur, will centers on a corporate climber (Nichols) who gets stuck working late on Christmas Eve and finds herself the target of an unhinged security guard (Bentley). With no help in sight, the woman must overcome physical and psychological challenges to survive. The Hollywood Reporter adds Aja and Levasseur are producing the film as well.

Franck Khalfoun, who also helped co-write the script, will make his directorial debut on P2; shooting will begin shortly for a 2007 release.
