It looks like actress Mackenzie Davis is starting to become a hot property. After turning quite a few heads recently with her supporting performance in "Like Crazy" director Drake Doremus' new Sundance hit "Breathe In,” she is now currently in talks to star in Sony’s horror comedy “The Kitchen Sink” alongside actor Nicholas Braun ("Perks of Being a Wallflower").
Slated to be directed by Robbie Pickering ("Natural Selection"), “The Kitchen Sink” follows “the unlikely alliance between a high school-aged vampire, zombie, and human as they try to save their own from invading aliens.” Pickering will be directing from Oren Uziel’s black-listed script. Fun bit of trivia: Jonah Hill was originally going to make this his directorial debut, but he eventually moved on.
After a small role in last year’s “Smashed,” Davis’ profile seems to be rising steadily. Our own review of the Drake Doremus film called her a “minor revelation” and an actress who is “worth keeping an eye on.” Now she’ll be given a chance to further showcase her talents in a film that should be much lighter in tone than the relationship drama, but will still allow her to show more facets of her talent.
You’ll probably have to wait until next year to see Mackenzie Davis and Nicholas Braun in “The Kitchen Sink,” in the meantime, be sure to catch the rising star in “Breathe In” which will hopefully be in theaters this year, though it will need to find a distributor first.
