It's a tale of rancor, anchor

Henstridge joins indie 'Anytown'

Natasha Henstridge has joined the cast of Dave Rodriguez's "Anytown," an indie drama that examines a racist high school attack and its aftermath.

Henstridge (ABC's "Eli Stone") will play a news anchor covering an attack on an Indian-American boy by two fellow students who videotape the crime. The event forces her to examine the media's post-Sept. 11 role in fueling hate crimes committed by youth.

Rodriguez ("Push") is producing and directing the project as well as co-writing the script with Zak Meyers. Matt O'Leary ("Brick"), Marshall Allman ("Prison Break"), Jonathan Halyalkar and Paul Ben-Victor also star.

K2 Pictures, 13 Steps Entertainment and Dirty District Entertainment are producing. The film is shooting in Los Angeles after a stint in Louisiana. The Collective's Shaun Redick is repping worldwide sales rights.

Henstridge is repped by Paradigm and Dave Fleming at Mosaic Media Group. Rodriguez is repped by the Collective.
