James Maslow (“Big Time Rush”) will star in indie thriller “Wild for the Night,” with Benny Boom directing for Tri Destined Studios.
Producers are Jacob Silver, Gregory Anderson and Rashad El Amin. Kirk Shaw, Nick Byassee and Arianne Fraser are exec producing.
Maslow will portray a loner seeking redemption from his past and searching for his sister’s killer who finds himself entangled in a game of seduction and revenge on the Los Angeles underground electronic dance music circuit. The screenplay is written by Gregory Ramon Anderson, Rashad El Amin, Hannah Macpherson and Joshua Michael Stern.
Maslow was a finalist on Season 18 of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” and stars alongside Jesse Bradford and Patrick Warburton in the Sony Crackle series “Sequestered.” He is currently in production on “Seeds of Yesterday,” the fourth installment in the “Dollanganger” series for Lifetime.
Picture this hypothetical situation and put yourself in it: you are a 24-year-old single guy who is an actor, singer and dancer, are extremely good looking, in terrific shape and live a block away from the beach in Venice, California. The vast majority of us would spend a ton of time partying and eating fattening foods at the top restaurants all over the globe. But not James Maslow.
“I like to train six days a week,” he says. “I love to exercise and it’s not always lifting weights. I also love to box and like to play sports.” As a youngster, Maslow played a lot sports. But when he was 13, he attended a performing arts school that didn’t have any sports teams, so he decided to join a gym to keep himself in shape. But he didn’t take it that serious and make it a full lifestyle until he was 20.
By that time, Maslow was already cast in the role as James Diamond on the hit Nickelodeon series “Big Time Rush,” in which he and his three cast mates played a boy band. They did their own singing and eventually released albums and went on world tours.
“We filmed four seasons and the band became a hit, as well,” recalls Maslow. “We have three gold albums, even platinum in a few countries like Venezuela. And the band still tours; (this past spring) we were in South America.” No rest for the weary as Maslow immediately began rehearsing for ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” nine hours after his flight landed back in the United States. Maslow became a household name with his sexy dance routines with partner Peta Murgatroyd and his open shirt costumes during their routines, exposing a finely detailed six-pack.
100+ high quality screen captures of James in the 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th & 12th episodes of Sequestered have been added into the gallery.
The fourth installment in Lifetime’s Flowers In The Attic series has gotten the official go. Lifetime said today that Seeds Of Yesterday will air next year. The saga of the tormented Dollanganger family comes to an end in the fourth and final book in V.C. Andrews’ series of novels.
Lifetime gave the go-ahead to the third installment, If There Be Thorns, last month and Seeds Of Yesterday was expected to follow shortly.
Jason Lewis and Rachael Carpani will reprise their roles from If There Be Thorns as Christopher and Cathy Dollanganger, while James Maslow (Big Time Rush) will play Bart Dollanganger. Shawn Ku (Beautiful Boy) directs from a script by Darren Stein (Jawbreaker).
