When we last reported on it, Sony’s Stage 6 was set to release David Ondaatje’s remake of “>The Lodger on December 31st, though we had no idea in what theatrical capacity. As of today, however, things have changed!
Sony let us know that The Lodger will be hitting New York and LA on January 23rd; hopefully more dates will be added if it does well enough. How’s about some official plot for those of you unsure?
The Lodger follows a seasoned detective on the trail of a ruthless killer intent on slaughtering prostitutes along West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip. It appears that the murderer’s grisly methods are identical to that of London’s infamous 19th Century psychopath Jack the Ripper – a relentless serial killer who was never caught by police. To make matters worse, the detective soon notices the parallels between the crimes committed by the West Hollywood stalker and those of a serial murderer executed years ago. Could the wrong man have been put to death?
Simon Baker, Alfred Molina, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Hope Davis star in this, the fourth remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s eponymous 1927 original.
