Simon Baker to Hunt The Killer Inside Me
As far as I'm concerned, Simon Baker improves just about any project he touches, and the upcoming remake of Jim Thompson's crime novel The Killer Inside Me was already looking pretty great! Baker joins the previously announced Casey Affleck, Bill Pullman, Ned Beatty, and Elias Koteas in the noir thriller.
Michael Winterbottom is directing the story, which was previously adapted into a film starring Stacy Keach in 1976, and is described by The Hollywood Reporter as centering on a West Texas sheriff (Affleck) and his downward spiral from a boring small-town cop into a ruthless, sociopathic murderer. The cast also includes Jessica Alba as a prostitute and Kate Hudson as the sheriff's schoolteacher girlfriend. Baker plays a county attorney looking to expose the sheriff as the killer.
Location shooting in New Mexico and Oklahoma begins this week.
