Olga Kurylenko, Armand Assante, and Oliver Trevena are set to star in the home invasion thriller Misdirection, directed by Kevin Lewis
Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Armand Assante (Judge Dredd) have signed on to star in the home invasion thriller Misdirection, Deadline reports. Willy’s Wonderland director Kevin Lewis will be taking the helm, working from a script by Lacy McClory, and filming is expected to begin later this year.
Oliver Trevena (Plane) is also in the cast. McClory’s story centers on a desperate couple (Kurylenko and Trevena), who have pulled off a string of high-end break-ins to pay off a mob debt. When they attempt to rob their latest victim, they find themselves caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse where the tables are turned and the hunters become the hunted.
Lewis had this to say about the project: “I am over the moon to be working with Olga, Armand, Oliver, and the rest of our amazing and talented team on crafting a tight, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will entertain audiences worldwide.“
Trevena is producing Misdirection alongside Marcus Englefield and George Lee of Storyoscopic Films, Michael Mendelsohn of Patriot Pictures, and Matt Drake of Abbott Street Films. Natalie Perotta and Fred Hedman serve as executive producers. Union Patriot Capital is in talks to handle the financing.
Englefield and Lee provided the following statement: “Balls-to-the-wall thrillers are just so fun to make, and with Kevin Lewis at the helm, he is sure to deliver another exciting and wildly imaginative film. This is our third feature together and we look forward to bringing his vision to life on the big screen.”
Hedman added: “We’re delighted to be working with Kevin and this producing on this gripping thriller with the level of talent involved, adding to our growing slate of high concept genre films.“
And Trevena had this to say: “I am so excited to be working again with my recent co-star and friend from The Paradox Effect, Olga Kurylenko. With Armand Assante on board, this will be a thrill ride both on the set and in the theater.“
Misdirection sounds interesting to me and I have been a fan of Olga Kurylenko’s ever since catching up on her previous movies in the build-up to the release of Quantum of Solace, so I’m looking forward to this one.
