Pamela Anderson Lee will be directed by Danny Huston in newcomer Lava Film’s “Dumped,” it was announced at a Tuesday evening American Film Market reception.

The “Baywatch” star appeared Tuesday at the Santa Monica Loews Hotel with the soon-to-be-lensed pic’s co-star Tia Carrera, wife of Lava co-founder Elie Samah. Lava is co-helmed by PM Entertainment’s Joseph Merhi. The film, penned by Kate Angelo, tells the story of a girl who dumps her boyfriend (Billy Zane) for revenge, but tries to undo everything after discovering she was wrong.

In short, the plot is “two sexy Hollywood girls getting dumped,” said Samaha.

The $5 million to $6 million pic, brokered by William Morris’ indie film head Cassian Elwes, is scheduled to begin lensing by the end of the month and is expected hit screens this fall.
