Last month we brought you the word that RED WHITE & BLUE director Simon Rumley had taken the reigns on the paranormal-themed thriller THE LAST WORD and today we have some interesting casting news to share with you as Heat Vision is reporting that "Jersey Boys" actor Mike Doyle is set to lead a cast that also includes Erin Cummings (BITCH SLAP) and BOONDOCK SAINTS star Sean Patrick Flanery.
Based on true events, The Last Word centers on the strange and tragic aftermath endured by the participants in the trial of a young man in Texas who was wrongly convicted and executed for the rape and murder of a nun.
In the Ben Ketai-written movie, a convicted man is executed for his crimes, but not before cursing those who sent him to his death. Soon enough, the people involved in the case, from witnesses to jurors, begin dying. When one juror's son's life in threatened, the man sets out to prove that the wrong person was convicted and reverse the curse.
Doyle will play the juror and father while Flanery will portray the district attorney. Cummings will play Doyle's wife.
This one sounds like it could be a helluva lotta fun, so we'll be keeping a close eye on this one.
