First Word and Art: John V. Soto to Direct The Reckoning

John V. Soto, director of the 2010 Australian supernatural film Needle, got in touch to tip us off to his latest Filmscope Entertainment feature, The Reckoning, as well as to provide us a peek at its key art.

Written, co-produced (with Deidre Kitcher) and to be directed by Soto, The Reckoning is set to star Callan McAuliffe (The Great Gatsby, I Am Number Four), with principal photography slated to start this February Down Under. Robert Lundberg, Greg Coote and David Calvert-Jones will executive produce the film, which will be shot on the 2K and revolves around (according to the official synopsis) “a detective investigating the roadside execution-style murder of his partner [who] discovers a video, shot by two teenagers, about the death of their sibling in an unsolved hit and run case. The teens have since gone missing, and as the detective retraces their journey, he soon uncovers a trail of murder that leads all the way back to him.”

Soto describes the project as Kalifornia meets Memento.

Stay tuned for more soon!
