At first Derek says nothing about Lisa to his wife, thinking he has things under control. He resolves to fire her but finds she's already quit, and he believes Lisa is gone from his life.

But a few weeks later, Derek receives a series of eerie, sexual e-mails, all from the same sender: "TEMPGIRL."

Sharon is pulled into the triangle as Lisa tries to drive a wedge between him and his wife.

When Sharon comes home one day to find that Lisa has been inside her home, she's had enough...and takes matters into her own hands.

What started as an office flirtation culminates in a shocking, no-holds-barred, violent and bloody standoff between two women who both feel they have everything to lose - and they're willing to die to keep from losing it.

Elba, who briefly worked the night shift at Ford, Dagenham, but is now based in the US and is best known to viewers of hit TV series The Wire, says: "Three films into my relationship with (movie company) Screen Gems, and they say, 'Want to do Obsessed? You're going to be working with Ali Larter and Beyonc�.' I was like, 'Wow, that's tough.'"

He adds: "Working with Beyonc� is definitely an experience. The image of Beyonc� is huge. She's an amazing talent.

"But when she gets on the set, she's very much an actress. She's very dedicated to the film, to the role.

"I remember the first day we met. We had to do this photo shoot for some of the pictures in the house.

"It literally went, 'Idris, this is Beyonc�. Beyonc�, this is Idris. Now you've met each other, we need to see you stand over there and kiss.'
