Days of Our Lives star Kate Mansi will be joining General Hospital star Ryan Carnes in an exciting new film.
According to Soap Opera News, the thriller is called The Perfect One, and is about a new mother who gets more than she bargained for when she joins the neighborhood mommy group.
It’s written and directed by Nick Everhart, who previously directed The Wrong Son with former daytimer Tammy Blanchard (ex-Drew Jacobs, Guiding Light).
There are conflicting reports about whether the movie is currently filming or is still in pre-production but it looks like it’s set for a 2018 release, so things will probably be moving fast if they aren’t already.
Carnes, who plays Lucas on General Hospital, seems poised to have his time on the show increase now that Lucas and Brad (Parry Shen) have adopted Michael’s (Chad Duell) supposedly dead baby, Jonah, whom they’re calling Wiley.
Carnes hasn’t had a lot to do up until now on the show so if he’s shooting a movie at the same time, he can probably still fit that in without him having to be temporarily replaced on the show.
Mansi, on the other hand, is portraying a front-burner character on Days of Our Lives, as Abigail, who is always in the middle of everything. But it is unknown, since the show shoots six months ahead, whether or not she is even still shooting on DAYS.
There had been rumors that her co-star, Billy Flynn (Chad) was no longer on the show and if that turns out to be true, their characters probably would have been written off together.
Either way, the actress more than likely only agreed to come back for her (rumored) short stint on the condition that she was allowed outs for film projects like this one.
