Kimberly Johnson to pen Capacity thriller

Project said to be in the vein of 'The Usual Suspects'

Kimberly Johnson, writer of Benderspink's upcoming woman-in-peril screenplay "Curve," is set to pen another female-led thriller for Capacity Pictures.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for the untitled feature, said to be in the vein of "The Usual Suspects" with a female character at the center. Capacity heads Wayne Rice and Richard Heller are producing.

The project will be the next out of the gate for Capacity. The company produced this summer's Magnolia Pictures release "Finding Amanda," starring Matthew Broderick, and recently completed production on the comedy "Housebroken," starring Danny DeVito.

Johnson, repped by Paradigm and manager Jill McElroy, wrote the Benderspink/Scatter Light Prods. "Curve" script while undergoing successful treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma. The project has served as a calling card for the USC film school grad.
