Red, White & Blue director Simon Rumley gets The Last Word

Simon Rumley delivered a finely crafted and truly disturbing film with 2010's RED, WHITE & BLUE, solidifying him as a director to keep an eye on, and followed that film up with one of the more solid entries in last years THE ABC'S OF DEATH with 'P is for Pressure'. Now The Hollywood Reporter is sharing that Rumley is set to take the helm on the paranormal-themed thriller THE LAST WORD with A7SLE Films principals Peter Facinelli and Rob DeFranco, along with Eric Gores and Frank Mancuso Jr. of Boss Media, producing.

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.

The film was written by Ben Ketai (BENEATH) and is slated to commence production this summer with plans for FilmDistrict to release the film domestically in 2014.
