NEW YORK — Norman Reedus, soon due out in “Gossip,” has separately inked for roles in Scott Kalvert’s “Deuces Wild” and Alan Watt’s “Eddie, Kill the President.”

In “Deuces,” Reedus is starring opposite Stephen Dorff. Exec produced by Martin Scorsese and produced by Michael Cerenzie and Paul Kimatian, the drama is a negative pickup for United Artists. Brad Renfro and Fairuza Balk also star.

In “Eddie, Kill the President,” Reedus will play one of two pals who spend a crazy night facing inner fears about the future and their lives.

Reedus is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
