Katie Aselton to direct and star in Black Rock

Katie Aselton (THE FREEBIE) is set to direct and star in the thriller BLACK ROCK, with Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth signing on to co-star. The film chronicles three childhood friends who embark on a weekend getaway to the isolated island of Black Rock, only to discover that they are not alone. The story was conceived by Aselton and written by Mark Duplass (CYRUS), both of whom will executive produce, with Adele Romanski (THE FREEBIE, THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER) reuniting with Aselton to produce the film. Aselton, who starred in and co-produced THE PUFFY CHAIR, is also currently a regular on the hit FX comedy THE LEAGUE, which was recently renewed for a third season. Aselton will also be seen in the upcoming comedies OUR IDIOT BROTHER, directed by Jesse Peretz and to be released this summer by The Weinstein Company, and Paramount’s JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME, written, directed and produced by Mark and Jay Duplass. Her debut film as a writer and director, THE FREEBIE, in which she co-starred opposite Dax Shepard, premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and was released theatrically by Phase Four Films to critical acclaim. “I grew up watching classic suspense films and have long had the idea of making a girl-based thriller where the threat to the characters is very real, and the audience is left with the terrifying thought ‘this could happen to me,’” said Aselton. “Exploring that kind of movie excites me as a filmmaker, and I am elated to have Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth alongside me on the journey.”
