Performers, Cast and Crew:
Alan Cumming stars in his own directorial follow-up to THE ANNIVERSARY PARTY. GHOST WRITER is an odd, dark horror-comedy hybrid about John, a struggling writer who is continually taken advantage of due to his soft spot for talented young men. When he realizes that Sebastian (David Boreanaz) is no different from the rest, John forces him work off his rent debt. This leads to the inadvertent death of Sebastian, who leaves in his wake a brilliant, unpublished piece of writing. A guilty John vows to get the book published as a sort of apology, but he can't help but take credit for the work when it becomes a hit. Sebastian may just have to come back from the dead to have a few words with his former mentor. GHOST WRITER co-stars Anne Heche, Henry Thomas, Carrie Fisher, Jane Lynch, and Karen Black.
Description by Genius Productions:
John Vandermark has taken in a struggling writer, Sebastian St. Germain who overstays his welcome. When John discovers that Sebastian has simply been using him, he turns the tables on his young tenant in an effort to make him work off his rent debt. When Sebastian dies accidentally in the process, John tries to make it up to him by helping him get his book published posthumously. When the book is published, John can't help but take credit for the work of genius... and Sebastian comes back to haunt him.
