Production Weekly reports that Willem Defoe is set to star in the indie drama Anamorph, for director Henry S. Miller.

Defoe plays Stanley Aubrey, a veteran cop investigating a serial killer who may be a copycat killer based on a famous murderer Stan allegedly disposed of five years ago. As the killings go on , his partner, Carl Unger, begins to suspect that Stan didn't do his due diligence five years ago when he pronounced the killer dead.

Production is scheduled to begin early January in the New York area.
