Morgan, Swank to co-star in ‘Resident’

Jeffrey Dean Morgan has signed on to reunite with his P.S. I Love You co-star Hilary Swank in the New York-set thriller The Resident.

The Hollywood Reporter said Morgan is to portray a landlord obsessed with a tenant, played by Swank, in the new movie, which is being directed by Finnish first-time filmmaker Antti J. Jokinen.

Jokinen has previously worked with Beyonce, Shania Twain and Will Smith on music videos.

Morgan is a member of the Grey's Anatomy ensemble and will soon be seen on the big screen in Watchmen.

Swank won Oscars for her performances in the films Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby.
