Romijn Dives into 'Lake City'

Although Rebecca Romijn was spurned as soon as she lost her mutant powers in "X-Men: The Last Stand," her love life has better luck in her latest project.

The model-turned-actress will play the protagonist's love interest in the drama "Lake City," co-written by first-time feature directors Perry Moore and Hunter Hill, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She and Keith Carradine join the already cast Sissy Spacek, Dave Matthews and Troy Garity.

The story revolves around a small-town man (Garity) who gets romantically involved with a cop (Romijn). While he's reuninting with his estranged mother (Spacek), he gets mixed up in the wrong crowd and endangers his home. Matthews plays one of that bad men who entraps him, while Carradine plays a local gas station attendant.

Production on the film began Monday, Oct. 9 in Virginia.

Romijn, 33, starred in the short-lived WB series "Pepper Dennis" with Brooke Burns. Her film resume includes the "X-Men" films, "Rollerball," "Femme Fatale" and "Godsend."

Carradine, 57, has appeared in "Nashville," "Pretty Baby," "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle," "2 Days in the Valley" and the upcoming "The Death and Life of Bobby Z." He also appeared on "Deadwood" playing Wild Bill Hickok.
