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.
