BLACK ROCK is KATIE ASELTON's (Director/Abby) second feature as a director, following her critically acclaimed THE FREEBIE, a Sundance Film Festival favorite from 2010. THE FREEBIE, a seriocomic look at a young married couples' experiment in infidelity, stars Aselton alongside Dax Shepard. The film was acquired by Phase 4 Films following its Sundance premiere and released theatrically in September 2010. In his rave New York Times review Stephen Holden called the film "a prelude to a Strindbergian nightmare."
Aselton's breakout acting role came in the acclaimed 2005 Sundance film THE PUFFY CHAIR. Directed by Mark and Jay Duplass, the film was nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards. Other notable film roles for Aselton include INTERVENTION (Berlin 2006, Silver Bear and Teddy Award), CYRUS (Sundance 2010) and Kyle Patrick Alvarez's EASIER WITH PRACTICE (2010 Independent Spirit Award Winner). Aselton was also recently seen in Jesse Peretz' 2011 comedy OUR IDIOT BROTHER opposite Paul Rudd.
Aselton also stars in the hit fantasy football comedy show "THE LEAGUE," currently in it third season on FX.
