Gellar along for thrill ride in “Addicted”

By Nicole Sperling

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Hoping to continue her
winning streak in the genre business, Sarah Michelle Gellar has
signed to star in the Hitchcockian thriller "Addicted."

The independently financed project centers on a woman whose
husband and brother-in-law both end up in a coma after an
accident. When the brother awakes, claiming to be her husband,
she must try to understand the reality, suspecting something
more sinister is at work.

The story is based on the 2002 South Korean film "Jungdok."
Swedish filmmakers Joel Bergvall and Simon Sandquist will
direct. The film is set for an October start.

Gellar, former star of the TV series "Buffy the Vampire
Slayer," will be in theaters October 13 with "The Grudge 2" and
then November 10 with the supernatural thriller "The Return."
She recently wrapped production on "The Girls' Guide to Hunting
and Fishing."
