Sam Jackson and Luke Wilson will be Meeting Evil

Working his way back from co-starring in BLONDE AMBITION with Jessica Simpson and pitching us crappy AT&T service, Luke Wilson has recently been getting back into actual films again and he's now set to star alongside Samuel L. Jackson in MEETING EVIL.

Jackson also hasn't been doing a terribly large amount of quality work lately (though he was great for five minutes in THE OTHER GUYS), and the duo is pairing with director Chris Fisher of (ugh) S. DARKO, and Leslie Bibb as Wilson's wife. What's it all about? Here's the synopsis of the original book from Thomas Berger:

Answering his door one morning, solidly middle-class John Felton finds a scruffy-looking man whose car is in need of a push. Responding helpfully despite his misgivings, John sets in motion a nightmarish series of events in which he becomes the unwitting accomplice of Richie Maranville, a psychotic criminal just released from a mental hospital. During their day-long crime spree, the two develop a curiously symbiotic relationship, with John ultimately discovering the dark, irrational side of himself he has long denied. While almost coming to believe Richie's assertion that they are psychic brothers, he makes a decision in the novel's final scene that lifts him forever above the "moral triviality" of his alter ego.

What the shit? Whatever, sounds intriguing I guess, so long as the twist ending isn't that Samuel L. Jackson was in his head the whole time.

Extra Tidbit: Whatever happened to Alan Tudyk in that TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL movie? That looked hilarious.

Jackson should do a Mace Windu who 'walks the earth' and gets into adventures spin off.

I forgot Luke Wilson still existed. He's incredibly bland though.

This sounds like someone took Collateral, Natural Born Killers, and...jeez, I dunno, maybe Garden State for that "finding yourself through an eccentric co-star" element, and threw them into a blender. I bet Sam gets to yell a lot, and Wilson will hesitate on his actions. Don't get me wrong, I love them both, but for their actual good performances in the past. Their agents, on the other hand...

Is there a movie that Sam Jackson won't say no to?? This could be OK but coming from the director of S Darko? HA, yeah right...

The character names and plot sound like something from a Stephen King novel-I like what I read.
