Jackson Rathbone, the bad-boy actor known as Jasper Hale from the "Twilight" franchise, plans to film a dark, offbeat feature flick called "Girlfriend" in Boston this September.
According to MTV News here, the feature is a "harsh, modern-day take on the 'Beauty and the Beast' fable" set in Middle America that thrusts Rathbone into a bizarre love triangle.
Rathbone reportedly met writer/director Justin Lerner during the Sundance Film Festival in January where they decided to produce the flick together. The duo are gearing for a four-week shoot in Boston in September, working around the "Twilight" actor's commitment on the third edition of the Stephenie Meyer franchise called "Eclipse."
Scouts are currently casting the flick's other roles--including Rathbone's female love interest.
