Jeffrey Dean Morgan to star in serial killer film The Postcard Killings

Jeffrey Dean Morgan The Walking Dead

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, an actor best known these days for playing the baseball bat loving villain Negan on the AMC series The Walking Dead, has signed on to star alongside Connie Nielsen and Jamie Blackley in an adaptation of the James Patterson and Liza Marklund novel THE POSTCARD KILLINGS. (If you'd like to pick up a copy of the book before the movie is released, it's available on Amazon.)

The film is set to be directed by Janusz Kaminski, who works primarily as a director of photography, most notably being Steven Spielberg's DP of choice ever since they worked together on SCHINDLER'S LIST. Spielberg and Kaminski both took home Oscars for that film.

Morgan will be starring in THE POSTCARD KILLINGS as 

a New York detective whose life is thrown into turmoil when he learns that his daughter and son-in-law have been brutally murdered in London. As he digs into the case, similar crimes are reported across Europe with each killing accompanied by a postcard sent to a local journalist.

Nielsen's character is "the detective’s ex-wife, who turns her grief back home into action when she becomes an active part of the hunt for her daughter’s killer." Blackley will be playing "a young American who gets caught up as the horror unfolds."

THE POSTCARD KILLINGS is being produced and financed by Good Films Collective, and Good Films and Lionsgate will be presenting the project to potential buyers at the American Film Market in Santa Monica this week.

Filming is scheduled to take place early next year.

I'm pretty tired of Negan on The Walking Dead, but I remain a fan of Morgan and think it's cool to see him taking the lead in a movie like this. I hope he'll mess up that serial killer as badly as Negan messed up his victims when he was first introduced.
