According to Lionsgate, the Boardwalk Empire starlet will headline as "Abby Russell, a beautiful, dedicated nurse with a sinister side, and a secret life's work in which she targets and punishes dishonest men. [...] The story was originally inspired by previous photography of horror tastemaker [and Lionsgate's Chief Marketing Officer Tim] Palen who explored the intersection of caretaking and punishment in an ongoing series of fine art photographs of beautiful, fantastical nurses used by the studio."
In the press release, Palen adds that "Paz is the perfect actress for this role and has already been such an inspiration to the whole project. She brings an intensity and a sense of adventure to this role that is so promising."
Principal photography is slated to begin September 6 in Toronto. Here is the revealing concept artwork, featuring de la Huerta in character, from Tim Palen.
