Jensen Ackles set for 'Bloody Valentine'


Jensen Ackles is in final negotiations to play a lead in Lionsgate's "My Bloody Valentine 3-D."

In helmer Patrick Lussier's remake of the 1981 slasher film, Ackles will play Tom, a handsome, principled man who returns to his home in Harmony, Mo., 10 years after 22 people were murdered on Valentine's night. Back in Montana, Tom finds he still is smitten with his first love, Sarah (Jaime King), and is now a murder suspect. Zane Smith wrote the screenplay.

Jack Murray, John Dunning and Andre Link will executive produce. Executive producers for Lionsgate are Mike Paseornek and John Sacchi.

Production begins May 12. A Jan. 23 release is planned.

Ackles (the CW's "Supernatural") is repped by WMA and Management 360.
