Looks like this one slipped through the cracks when Ryan Reynolds signed up for it back in August, but Atom Egoyan has just hired another pair of actors for his new psychological abduction thriller QUEEN OF THE NIGHT.
According to Deadline, Mireille Enos (below) and Scott Speedman (seen right) have boarded the film, in which Reynolds plays a father who discovers a series of disturbing clues eight years after his daughter is abducted, a trail that leads him to believe the now 17-year-old girl is alive.
Enos will play his wife, who dutifully checks in with police each year on her daughter’s birthday, and realizes that disturbing memorabilia left at her workplace is not merely there to taunt her but could offer clues to her daughter’s whereabouts. Speedman will play the cop searching the his missing daughter.
Looking good to me. Egoyan is a master of mystery and intrigue, so for me it's going to boil down to Reynolds' performance. Dude's hit or miss, but with this director and support, it's kind of hard to f*ck up. So Ry, don't f*ck it up!
QUEEN OF THE NIGHT goes under the lens early next year in Ontario.
