Two absolutely incredible actors, Al Pacino (The Devil’s Advocate) and Karl Urban (Dredd, Doom) have joined cast of the upcoming serial killer thriller flick Hangman, according to Variety. Brittany Snow (“Nip/Tuck”, Prom Night) has also hopped aboard the film, which is being produced by Patriot Pictures and Union Patriot Capital Management’s CEO Michael Mendelsohn and Arnold Rifkin of Cheyenne Enterprises, per the site.
The site also describes the film:
Pacino will portray a decorated homicide detective and Urban will play a criminal profiler who collaborate to catch a serial killer who’s terrorizing a city with a macabre version of the children’s game Hangman. Snow will play a crime journalist shadowing the detectives.
Hangman will be directed by Johnny Martin (Vengeance: A Love Story) and was co-written by Michael Caissie and Charles Huttinger. Martin did some touch-ups to the script.
Martin explains, “It’s every director’s dream to work with Al Pacino. Brittany Snow brings a fresh, instinctual presence to the production, while Karl Urban’s strength, instinct, and versatility heighten the action and this genre. This film is amazing and will appeal to a wide audience.”
Filming will begin later this month.
