Plot Summary: A darkly comic noir about a guy trying to unravel the mystery around the murder of his pet cat.
Deadline Nikki Reed is filling out her post-Twilight dance card with a quirky indie project. The Sam Raimi-produced pic follows a young man (Fran Kranz) who discovers his dead cat was leading a double life with another owner. Reed will play Greta opposite Kranz, while J.K. Simmons and Greg Kinnear are also attached to star. Gillian Greene, who’s married to Raimi, makes her directorial debut with the dark comedy. Molly Hassell is also producing. Christian Magalhaes and Robert Snow’s script made the Black List in 2010.
Reed starred as vampire Rosalie Hale in Summit’s Twilight films after earning an Indie Spirit award for her debut turn in Thirteen. She’ll next be seen in Dito Montiel’s Empire State and the Joss Whedon-produced In Your Eyes. She’s repped by Paradigm, Thruline and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
