Simon Rumley, best known in horror circles for directing the thriller Red White & Blue (pictured), has been tapped to direct the paranormal-themed project The Last Word, says THR.

Based on true events, 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.

Ben Ketai wrote the script.

A7SLE Films principals Peter Facinelli and Rob DeFranco, along with Eric Gores and Frank Mancuso Jr. of Boss Media, are producing. It was announced in April that FilmDistrict will co-finance with Boss Media.

Word will be the biggest movie to date for Rumley, whose Red White & Blue was distributed by IFC Midnight and made the festival rounds, garnering him a cult following,

    Awesome, Ive been waiting for Rumley’s next project. Both “Red White and Blue” and “The Living and the Dead,” were amazing. Same with his shorts. Definitely looking forward to this

    Red, White and Blue was amazing. Not truly horrific until the final act, but man does it deliver. What a great and seldom mentioned film. Noah Taylor is amazing in it. Cant wait to see Rumley’s next film.
    Go watch Red, White and Blue.
