Donald Faison Will Kill His Wife In 'Scandal' Star Scott Foley's Directorial Debut, 'Ward's Wife'

Donald Faison has signed up to star in Scandal cast member, Scott Foley’s feature directorial debut, titled Ward’s Wife.

To be produced by Foley and his brother-in-law Patrick Wilson, as well as James Carpinello, Marcus Chait and Joe Hardesty for their Lost Rhino banner, the film, described as a dark comedy, centers on on Ward (played by Donald Faison), a man at his wits’ end, who decides to kill his wife to free himself from her relentless emotional and verbal abuse. 

Director Scott Foley’s real life wife, Marika Dominczyk, will play Ward’s wife in the film.

Nicollette Sheridan also co-stars – her first film role since last March, when her suit against ABC and Desperate Housewives ended in a mistrial. 

Foley, Patrick Wilson, James Carpinello, Amy Acker and Greg Grunberg round out the film’s cast. 

Shooting is scheduled to begin in LA later this month. 

Up next for Faison, catch him as Doctor Gravity in Kick-Ass 2, this summer.
