Mark Pellegrino will topline indie drama “Joint Body,” for writer/director Brian Jun with shooting set to start next month in Illinois.

James Choi and Max Velez are producing. Alicia Witt (“Friday Night Lights”) and Jim Parrack (“True Blood”) have also been cast.

Story centers on a parolee who’s abandoned by his ex-wife and barred from seeing his young daughter. He develops a relationship with a lonely stripper, saves her from an unlikely assailant and is forced to re-evaluate his freedom as he evades the law and faces demons from his past.

Pellegrino can currently be seen on the final season of ABC’s “Lost” and portraying Lucifer during the fifth season of CW Network’s “Supernatural.” He’s represented by Domain and managed by Framework Entertainment.
