Never Back Down and Easy A star Cam Gigandet is set to join the cast of Plush. He'd star opposite Sucker Punch and Sleeping Beauty star Emily Browning, Variety reports.
The film, from Twilight and Red Riding Hood director Catherine Hardwicke (who also co-wrote with Arty Nelson) is officially described as follows:
“After losing her band mate and brother to a drug overdose, rising rock star Hayley finds herself in a downward spiral. The second album from her band Plush is received as a critical and commercial disaster. She finds new hope and friendship in Enzo, the replacement guitarist who inspires her to reach new creative heights. But soon their collaboration crosses the line sexually and Hayley, who is married with two children, retreats from Enzo’s advances. As Hayley slowly discovers Enzo’s dark and troubled history, she realizes she may have let a madman into her home and family and that her mistake may cost the lives of people closest to her.”
As was the case when Browning's involvement was first announced, that description marks a sharp contrast to Variety's take, which says that the film focuses on a psychologist who uses a supernatural ability to go inside the minds of his patients and who runs into trouble when one girl (Browning) is revealed to have the same psychic talent.
We must admit however, that recently Variety has proven unreliable. They have been publishing false stories, and overall seem just to be getting information wrong about upcoming films.
What ever the case may be, we will find out soon enough what Plush is really all about.
