A decent amount of talent has signed on for Chris Fisher’s (S. Darko) adaptation of Thomas Berger’s 1992 novel Meeting Evil, and we’ve got the info on who it is!
Just before the New Year’s break, The Wrap reported that Luke Wilson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Leslie Bibb have all joined the project, which explores one man’s darker side. In addition, Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that Shuttle‘s Peyton List has also joined the cast.
Shooting is set to begin filming this weekend. More soon.
When John (Wilson) answers a knock at his front door, he thinks nothing of giving the man outside, Richie (Jackson), a hand starting his car. John’s charitable impulses lead him to offer to guide Richie to a nearby petrol station, but he has a bad feeling about this stranger. What starts as a simple trip turns into an extraordinary journey into darkness.
Before the day is over, John will witness Richie commit violent crime after violent crime, and yet John can’t seem to disentangle himself from the dangerous lunatic. Richie, meanwhile, is desperate to explain the qualities that he believes the two men have in common and the friendship they could share.
When John arrives home at the end of this nightmarish day, Richie has fooled John’s wife, Joan (Bibb), into believing that he is a client of John’s, and Joan is busily entertaining him. John then faces the toughest decision of his life: how to protect his family and get rid of Richie for good.
