Based on the graphic novel of the same name, The Scribbler follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman who is confronting her destructive mental illness by using an experimental method, called The Siamese Burn, that’s designed to eliminate multiple personalities.  Surrounded by a colorful cast of characters who keep ending up dead, Suki begins to wonder just which personality might turn out to be her.  Directed by John Suits, the film also stars Garret Dillahunt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Michael Imperioli, Gina Gershon, Eliza Dushku, Billy Campbell and Sasha Grey.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Katie Cassidy talked about how she fought for this role, how hands-on the development of the character was, how much the tattoos and piercings helped her become Suki, that she wanted to burn the wig when she was done with the shoot, working in Linda Vista Community Hospital, which is said to be haunted, the most challenging aspect of the shoot, and how much fun it was to fight Michelle Trachtenberg.  She also talked about finally getting let in on the big secret on Arrow, and how great it is to be a part of the bigger story now.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

THE SCRIBBLER Trailer: Katie Cassidy vs. An Identity Disorder

Even knowing next to nothing about the Daniel Schaffer graphic novel, with a cast including Katie Cassidy, Garret Dillahunt, Eliza Dushku, Michelle Trachtenberg, Sasha Grey and Michael Imperioli, John Suits’ big screen adaptation of The Scribbler quickly got my attention.  The film focuses on Cassidy’s Suki, a character who opts to use a new form of treatment to annihilate her multiple personalities caused by a dissociative identity disorder.

The concept is interesting and the brand new trailer has some curious imagery to go along with it, but as someone with no prior knowledge of the source material, I’m still having a tough time wrapping my head around who The Scribbler is and what she’s capable of.  There’s something intriguing about it, but nothing concrete enough to establish much of a draw.  Check out The Scribbler trailer for yourself after the jump.  The film arrives on iTunes and On Demand on September 19th.
