OK, so it’s not just any Lifetime movie. It’s an adaptation of “Big Driver,” the Stephen King novella, starring Maria Bello as mystery writer Tess Thorne who seeks revenge after she is attacked. Jett will play Betsy Neal, who Thorne turns to for help. Olympia Dukakis is also set for the movie, which begins filming in Halifax, Nova Scotia, this summer and is set to premiere this fall.

I haven’t found any stills of Joan or pics from the set, but they have released some stills with Maria Bello here:
