I've read my fair share of plot summaries, and I have to say -- this one is definitely interesting, and strange enough that it could be good. So The Hollywood Reporter posts that there's this new indie black comedy on the way, Possessions, and it will star Trent Ford (The West Wing), Jaime Murray (the crazy Lila on Dexter), and Autumn Reeser (The OC). The film was written, and will be directed by, newcomer Nathan Adolfson. But the plot's the key.

According to this job post, the film will focus on a dude named Orlando (Ford) who is dying from cancer. "Resigned to his fate, all he wants is to be left alone with his alcohol and drugs. But his hopes of solitude are destroyed when he wakes to hear Jean-Luc, an incessantly chatty Frenchman who happens to be a voice in his head. Now, in addition to cancer, Orlando must deal with Jean-Luc's never-ending questions and commentary, as well as the discovery that Jean-Luc is slowly taking over every sense of his body (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch)."

Strange, eh? I guess if Orlando isn't going to make use of it, Jean-Luc will pick up the slack. THR says that Murray and Reeser "form an odd quadrangle" with the struggling man. Production began Friday in Los Angeles.
