Tribeca Film Will Release SCANDAL Star Scott Foley's Directorial Debut

Let me tell you a little something about Scott Foley. First of all, if you were/still are a Felicity fan, then you'll understand what I mean when I say that I've always been Team Ben (Scott Speedman). Which means that I was never really on the Scott Foley bandwagon. I thought he was, well, forgettable. But anyways, flash forward more than ten years later when I saw this picture conspicuously float across my Twitter feed that gave me pause:

Let's just say I never forgot him after that day. Though I hear lately Foley is making waves on another small screen hit, ABC's Scandal, I much prefer to stare at this picture to get my fix. In fact, I'd like to think this is how he looked when he was writing his soon to be released directorial debut, LET'S KILL WARD'S WIFE

The intriguingly titled dark comedy teams Foley (who also stars in the film) with Donald Faison, Nicollette Sheridan and Patrick Wilson among others, and was just picked up by Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment for a January 2015 theatrical release. Here's a little more about it:

Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife is a hilariously dark comedy about helping a friend out of a bad relationship by any means necessary. Everyone hates Ward’s wife and wants her dead, Ward most of all. But when his friends’ murderous fantasies turn into an (accidental) reality, they have to deal with a whole new set of problems -- like how to dispose of the body and still make their 3 p.m. tee time.

For some reason this is giving me a very Weekend at Bernie's vibe. But I am interested to see how Foley will fare as a filmmaker, and if this project will lead to others. Tribeca Film is on a roll these days with Nas: Time is Illmatic and the recently announced Listen Up, Phillip

What do you think? Will you see Foley's new film?
