The Roommate is an upcoming 2011 thriller film, directed by Christian E. Christiansen and starring Minka Kelly, Danneel Harris, Leighton Meester, Cam Gigandet and Alyson Michalka.A college freshman, Sara (Minka Kelly), is randomly assigned to a dorm with a stranger named Rebecca (Leighton Meester). They start off as friends, but things turn deadly as Rebecca begins to obsess over Sara's life including her friends and family.The film was shot on location at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Leighton Meester was originally set to play Sara but was replaced by Minka Kelly, then Meester took the role of Rebecca. Cam Gigandet and Alyson Michalka previously starred alongside each other in another Screen Gems film, Easy A. Nina Dobrev confirmed via Twitter that she filmed a scene in the movie, coincidentally not alongside her The Vampire Diaries cast mate and friend, Katerina Graham.[The release was planned for September 17, 2010, but was moved to a theatrical release of February 4, 2011. The trailer can be seen with Devil and Burlesque.Some of the promotional posters and displays for the film used as its backdrop the Christy Administration Building from Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas. The college administration voiced concern that permission to use the photograph of the building was not properly obtained and is currently investigating the legality of its use. Primary concerns hinge that the image of the college—particularly the image of the building—could be damaged. Other concerns are that the college's primary iconic image is being used for promotion of an unrelated business venture.
