Buffy the Vampire Slayer alums Seth Green and Michelle Trachtenberg are joining Katee Sackhoff in the indie drama Sexy Evil Genius.

Billy Baldwin and Harold Perrineau Jr. (Lost) are also boarding the film, being directed by Shawn Piller, the executive producer of ABC Family's Greek.

Genius centers on a group of strangers brought together in a downtown Los Angeles bar by their mutual ex-girlfriend (Sackhoff). The woman is mysterious about her intentions, but by the night's end, according to the movie's makers, revenge will be had, romance kindled and the wronged woman will have delivered on her reputation as the sexy evil genius at the center of all their lives.

The movie begins production this week in Los Angeles.

The script was written by Scott Lew, a filmmaker afflicted by ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig¹s Disease, the same malady suffered by Stephen Hawking. Lew wrote the script using an infrared dot on his forehead, pointing to letters and words on the computer screen.

Lloyd Segan of Piller/Segan/Shepherd, the company behind TV series Dead Zone and Haven, and David W Higgins of Launchpad Productions are producing.

Sobini Films’ Mark Amin is also producing the movie with Sobini’s Cami Winikoff exec producing.

Green, repped by UTA and Koopman Management, did voicework in Mars Needs Moms and last appeared on screen in Old Dogs.

Trachtenberg, repped by UTA and Framework Entertainment, recurs on CW¹s Gossip Girl.
