'Mystery' thesp to star in indies 'Days,' 'Shegalla'

NEW YORK — Actress Lolita Davidovich, who next will be seen co-starring with Russell Crowe and Hank Azaria in the Jay Roach-directed hockey film “Mystery Alaska” at Hollywood Pictures, has agreed to star in the indie films “Four Days” and “Shegalla” in quick succession.

“Four Days,” in which she stars with Kevin Zegers, Colm Meaney and William Forsythe, is a bank heist told through the eyes of a teenager. Scripted by Pinkney Benedict, it’s directed by Curtis Wehrfritz and produced by Lorraine Richard and Greg Dummett under the Cite-A-Merique banner.

In “Shegalla,” Davidovich plays the estranged daughter of a 65-year-old cowgirl played by Lynn Redgrave, who battles her family and community and hides her problems with alcohol and a seedy bunch of friends. Mom’s life changes when she is romanced by a 23-year-old runaway from a mental institution. He proposes, but is also wooing a girl his own age. Through this ordeal, her daughter, played by Davidovich, attempts to get back into her mother’s odd life. The film is directed by Mort Ransen (“Margaret’s Museum”) and exec produced by Raymond Massey.

Davidovich is represented by ICM’s Toni Howard and Joe Funicello and managed by Nancy Sanders of Sanders Management.
