Boreanaz is no angel for WB's 'Valentine' pic
Signing on to his first
studio feature film, "Angel" star David Boreanaz has been cast in Warner
Bros. thriller "Valentine" for director Jamie Blanks ("Urban Legend").
Based on Tom Savage's 1996 book "Valentine: A Novel," the film is about
a college nerd (Boreanaz) who is the victim of a vicious practical joke
by four women. More than 10 years later, he is handsome, charismatic and
successful -- but carries a hatred that is still intact. After killing
three of the four women on successive Valentine's Days, he has one more
left in order to complete his vengeance. Shooting begins in Vancouver in
mid-July. The film, targeted for a 2001 Valentine's Day release, was written
by Donna and Wayne Powers, with a rewrite by Aaron Harberts and Gretchen
Berg. Dylan Sellers produces the film, which is overseen by Warner Bros.
exec Kevin McCormick. Boreanaz is repped by ICM's Tracy Brennan and Ron
West and Visionary Entertainment's Tom Parziale. The actor first came to
prominence on the WB Network series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" before getting
his own spinoff series "Angel," entering its second season.
