Marsden set for MGM’s ‘Behavior’

MGM has set James Marsden to head the cast of “Disturbing Behavior,” a horror pic about a small town’s nefarious process of transforming its unruly and rebellious teens into clean-cut and upstanding citizens, sources said.

Marsden will play the role of Steve Clark, a new kid in town who stumbles upon the mysterious personality makeovers.

Marsden recently starred in the high-profile CBS mini “Bella Mafia.” He recently wrapped work on the ABC pilot “The Castle,” produced by Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, who also directed. Marsden also starred in ABC’s “Second Noah.”

“Disturbing Behavior,” slated for a January start date, was written by Scott Rosenberg. David Nutter, best-known for directing episodes of “The X-Files,” will helm the film, which MGM prexy Michael Nathanson acquired.

Jon Shestack and Armyon Bernstein of Beacon Pictures, still flying high off their hit “Air Force One,” will produce.

Marsden’s deal was brokered by his agents at Paradigm, Sandi Dudek and Joel Rudnick, attorney Keith Fleer and manager Ellen Meyer.
