'Twilight' star Cam Gigandet to star in new film from 'Twilight' director

Cam Gigandet is to star in the next film from Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.

According to Variety, Gigandet has been cast in Plush, a thriller whose screenplay was co-written by Hardwicke and Artie Nelson. Hardwicke will also produce the film.

Gigandet will play a psychic psychologist with the ability to delve into the memories of his patients. Emily Browning, best known for her role in Sucker Punch, will co-star as a woman with the same gift.

Gigandet and Hardwicke previously worked together on the first Twilight movie, in which Gigandet played James, the leader of a group of vampires intent on killing Kristen Stewart's character, Bella.

Gigandet has since appeared in films including Burlesque, The Roommate and Easy A. Hardwicke's first film since Twilight – a version of Red Riding Hood starring Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman – was released last year.
