‘X-Files’ Star Mitch Pileggi Joins ‘Hart of Dixie’s’ Claudia Lee in ‘The Girl in the Photographs’

Movies | By Jeff Sneider on May 7, 2015 @ 4:43 pm

“The X-Files” star Mitch Pileggi is set to join Claudia Lee (“Hart of Dixie”), Katharine Isabelle (“Hannibal”), Miranda Rae Mayo (“Pretty Little Liars”), Christy Carlson Romano (“Kim Possible”), Toby Hemingway (“Black Swan”) and Luke Baines (“Saving Mr. Banks”) in the indie thriller “The Girl in the Photographs,” which also stars Kal Penn and Kenny Wormald, TheWrap has learned.

Horror legend Wes Craven (“Scream”) is executive producing the film, which is being directed by his protégé Nick Simon, who co-wrote the script with Oz Perkins and Robert Morast.

Lee will play the title character of Colleen, a bored small-town girl trying to distance herself from an abusive boyfriend when two serial killers begin leaving her photo at the scene of their brutal crimes.

The project is the first from Kuwait-based Al-Ghanim Entertainment, a film financing and production company. Production is currently under way in Canada, and CAA is selling North American rights.

Pileggi is a genre icon who previously starred in Craven’s classic 80’s film “Shocker.” He’s also set to reprise his role as Walter Skinner in the upcoming “X-Files” reboot on FOX. He’s repped by Pakula/King & Associates.

Lee is repped by Paradigm and Joanne Horowitz Management, while Isabelle is repped by The Characters Talent Agency and Play Management. Hemingway is repped by Innovative Artists and 3 Arts, and Baines is repped by 42 and Radius Entertainment. Carlson Romano is repped by CESD and Brad Stokes Management. Mayo, who has a recurring role in season 2 of HBO’s “True Detective,” is repped by Abrams Artists and Sheila Crawford Management.

The Mitch Man himself has confirmed his involvement in the six episode revival of THE X-FILES. Variety has picked up the story as well. Mitch’s funny tweet went like this:

Then later he had this to say:

At any rate, good to see our favourite bald G-Man will be back. Long live Walter Skinner!

On behalf of ARTISAN I’d like to wish Mitch a Happy Birthday. He turns a ripe young 63 today and looks better than ever. I’m hoping he has the greatest day possible with Arlene and Sawyer. He deserves all the best.
