Leto and Witt to co-star in thriller
Michael Rosenbaum, whose debut came in Clint Eastwood’s “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” and “Dawson’s Creek” star Joshua Jackson have joined the growing cast of “Urban Legend” for Phoenix Pictures, the company said Friday.
The pair join Jared Leto and Alicia Witt in the pic that explores a series of strange deaths investigated by a curious student. When the student gets too close to discovering how the deaths are connected, she finds out that she’s the next target.
Jamie Blanks is helming the pic, which starts shooting in April, from a script by Silvio Horta.
Neal Moritz, Gina Matthews and Michael McDonnell are producing. Brad Luff is exec producer.
Rosenbaum is a series regular on “The Tom Show” for WB.
Jackson’s credits include “Scream 2,” “Andre,” the “Mighty Ducks” trilogy and another upcoming Phoenix Pictures film, “Apt Pupil.”
Rosenbaum’s deal was brokered by Pardigm’s Scott Melrose and Aaron Mazzolini. He is managed by Jeff Golenberg and Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment.
Jackson was repped by Jeff Field and Theresa Peters of the William Morris Agency and Michael Bircumshaw of Atlas Entertainment.
