E!'s Chelsea Handler may bring on the laughs during her late-night television show Chelsea Lately, but in her upcoming film, she's bringing on the drama.
And not the feuding type of drama we're used to, either.
Deadline reports that Handler will take on the dark role of a restless housewife in the adaptation of Eric Bogosian's 2001 novel, Mall.
Handler's castmates include Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Vincent D'Onofrio, who plays a "voyeuristic businessman" and is also producing the film with partner Erika Hampson and Sam Maydew.
"This film will be a comment on social violence," D'Onofrio said in a statement. "It begins as a man walks through the front door of a suburban mall armed to the teeth, causing five strangers to embark on a night that will change them forever. As the bullets fly, one teenage boy hurtles through the night on a collision course with the man he will become."
Joe Hahn of Linkin Park will unleash his directing debut in this movie, and Bogosian will make a cameo as a store owner.
