An ex-con exacts revenge on a small town in Phedon Papamichael's Ruthless

08.21.2012by: Eric Walkuski

Phedon Papamichael (pictured), who has been the Director of Photography of films as THE DESCENDANTS, IDES OF MARCH, 3:10 TO YUMA, and WALK THE LINE, is attached to direct RUTHLESS, a gritty suspense thriller from screenwriter Cooper Layne, who also wrote THE FOG remake and THE CORE. Those movies aren't very good, they were also gaudy studio pictures; perhaps this is an original idea close to Layne's heart.

RUTHLESS follows an ex-con who was recently released from prison and settles in a small town in Louisiana. He begins to torment and exact revenge on the locals who impacted his past.

“This is the kind of material that actors and directors dream about. I am very excited for the opportunity to direct this film,” Papamichael said.

The film will be shooting in Louisiana, although "when" is unclear. We'll keep an eye on RUTHLESS' progress.

Extra Tidbit: Papamichael also did some stellar work on IDENTITY, which co-starred Amanda Peet (above).
