The Zodiac killer terrorized the San Francisco area from 1966-78, committing at least 37 murders and documenting his exploits in snide missives mailed to the newspaper. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Graysmith (Daily Variety, April 19).

Sevigny’s currently starring in the new HBO skein “Big Love” opposite Bill Paxton. She will also appear in two pics unspooling at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival: Thom Fitzgerald’s “3 Needles” and Phyllis Nagy’s “Mrs. Harris.”
