Katie Holmes Joins Rufus Sewell In ‘Dangerous Liasons’ Show
Talkbacker, 7 March 2014
Following Rufus Sewell’s casting, Katie Holmes ('Dawson’s Creek', 'Batman Begins') has joined an untitled ABC pilot created by Richard LaGravenese ('Beautiful Creatures', 'The Fisher King', 'The Mirror Has Two Faces'). It is described as an intense drama in the vein of ABC’s 'Revenge' and 'Dangerous Liasons' set in modern day New York City.
Holmes will play Ann, a woman of education and breeding, who has never used those advantages for power over others. She’s smart, stylish and genuinely down to earth (basically the Michelle Pfeiffer role). Ann runs a philanthropic foundation with her husband. When Philip (Rufus Sewell) and Margot (still uncast) make a bet and destroy Ann’s perfect marriage, Ann learns to play the game and becomes the ultimate match for Philip.
Taylor Hackford ('An Officer and a Gentleman', 'The Devil’s Advocate', 'Ray') will direct the untitled pilot.
