*“Scandal” star Scott Foley and his brother-in-law Patrick Wilson are teaming up to produce “Ward’s Wife” starring former “Scrubs” star Donald Faison.

The film was also written by Foley and marks his feature directorial debut.

The dark comedy focuses on Ward (Faison) a man who has just had enough of being emotionally and verbally beaten down by his spouse and decides to kill her to free himself.

Ward’s wife will be played by Foley’s real life spouse Marika Dominczyk. Nicollette Sheridan will also star. It’s her first film role since her wrongful termination suit against ABC and “Desperate Housewives” ended in a mistrial on March 2012.

“Ward’s Wife” is scheduled to begin production in LA later this month. Faison will next be seen in Kick-Ass 2, due Aug. 16.
