About a year-and-a-half after three women accused Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick of sexual assault — allegations that he strongly denied — the actor has reemerged in Hollywood for what he hopes will be his comeback project. Per Deadline, Westwick is starring in Louise Linton’s “playful” directorial and writing debut Me, You, and Madness, a caper comedy that revolves around a thief who, while “casing a secluded mansion in Malibu, discovers he is robbing the home of a serial killer.” The shooting very recently wrapped, after delays that were caused by last year’s horrible southern California wildfires. Linton, you may recall, is the actress wife of Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, and in the past has enjoyed taunting poor people with hashtags on social media.
