Hilary Swank playing The Resident

Hilary Swank has latched on to stalker thriller The Resident, which Hammer Films is producing.

Swank will play a doctor who moves into a New York loft, but soon discovers that her landlord is (cue the dramatic music sting!) a creepy stalker.

First-time helmer Antti J Jokinen will direct the film from his script co-written with Robert Orr.

Secretary writer

But the screenplay also has some added girl power – Secretary scribe Erin Cressida Wilson has polished it up, which is probably why Swank decided to star.

The film will start shooting in May, and once its released, we’ll all start hoping it turns out better than The Reaping .
