Earlier this week Variety reported that
Dominic Sena ("Gone in 60 Seconds")
will direct the 1952 pulp fiction classic "The
Killer Inside Me" by Jim Thompson.
While I didn't care much for "Gone in 60
Seconds" because of the story, I am fairly
excited about the prospects for "The Killer
Inside Me." First of all, it's an excellent
book, considered by many to be Jim Thompson's
best. Stanley Kubrick called it "the
most chilling and believeable first-person story
of a criminally warped mind that I have ever encountered."
I agree. But who to play the main character, Lou
Ford, a sheriff's deputy with a psychopathic side?
My vote would be for someone totally unexpected...
someone like Sylvester Stallone! Fans have
been wanting to see him play a bad guy... well,
this could be the role. Whoever is chosen should
be playing totally against character... someone
that everyone would NEVER suspect is a pschopathic
murderer... if not Sly then maybe Harrison
Ford? At any rate... check
out the book!
