Neve Campbell, former ‘Party of Five’ star, is set to film a new movie, ‘Sworn to Silence,’ for the Lifetime Network. The film tells the story of a woman who moves away from her Amish society in Ohio, only to return later as a chief of police to investigate a murder that triggers painful memories from her childhood.

Does the plot for the Campbell’s new film sound familiar? It might - it is based off of the book of the same name by Linda Costello.

Entertainment Weekly
reports that the film is going to be used as a “backdoor pilot,” meaning that based on the movie, the concept could be picked up for a regular series with Lifetime.

“Growing our scripted programming remains a top priority for Lifetime and our long-form strategy provides us with a strong stable from which to identify potential series,” said Nancy Dubuc, President and General Manager of Lifetime Networks, in a statement.  “I’ve always admired Neve’s work.  She is a proven talent who will bring a high level of intensity and presence to this role and Sworn to Silence.”

Campbell recently wrapped filming for the Titanic documentary, “Titanic: Blood and Steel”, which was filming in Dublin recently and will air on the BBC in 2012.
