Feature Film "Careful What You Wish For" Auditions
"Careful What You Wish For" centers on self-conscious high school student Doug Martin who gets more than he bargained for when he starts a torrid affair with Lana Harper - the young, lonely wife of wealthy investment banker Elliott Harper, who rents the lake house next door to his parents vacation cabin. The husband's murder reveals a substantial life insurance policy, and rocks their sleepy vacation town. Suddenly everyone is suspect including Dave in this edgy and sexy thriller reminiscent of "Body Heat," "The Postman Always Rings Twice," and "Basic Instinct".
