John V. Soto's (NEEDLE) indie crime thriller THE RECKONING has just cast Jonathan LaPaglia (pictured above) and Luke Hemsworth to star in the flick with principal photography set to begin on April 29th on location in Australia. Robert Beaumont, President of Lightning Entertainment, will handle International sales rights to the film.
The story revolves around a detective who discovers footage at a murder scene, shot by two teenagers, that provides clues to the identity of a killer. The teens have since gone missing, and as the detective retraces their journey, he soon uncovers a trail of deceit and murder that leads all the way back to him.
I love a good murder mystery and this one sounds like it's going to be pretty kick ass. Deidre Kitcher is producing who describes the film "as MEMENTO meets KALIFORNIA” — not bad!
Robert Lundberg, Greg Coote, David Calvert-Jones, Roger Savill and Kim Savill will executive produce the film.
