Director Lucky McKee’s Next Horror Movie Will Be ‘Desperate And Violent’

Lucky McKee has made some of the most interesting horror movies of the 21st century: Angela Bettis-led freaky Frankenstein tale May, nipple-twisting torture session The Woman and even campy fun All Cheerleaders Die have made McKee a name amongst the horror buffs of the world. If you’ve never seen May in particular, seek it out!Now McKee has set his sights on fellow horror alum John Cusack to star in his next horror thriller, Misfortune. Bloody Disgusting report that the storyline of Misfortune follows:

”A quick-witted businessman who leaves everything behind, including his family, to start a new life after embezzling a client’s money. Everything had been going according to plan until he becomes separated from his cash in the middle of the wilderness. Three young friends happen upon the lost fortune, and a desperate and violent Miller will do anything to get his money back.”

Radiant Films, who are selling the movie, are delighted to have Identity‘s John Cusack on board as the aforementioned businessman, saying:

“We are thrilled to be working with a talent such as John Cusack. He is perfect for the role of a white-collar businessman so consumed by greed he trails off the beaten path of morality. Cusack combined with Lucky’s knack for suspense, give the film all the ingredients it needs for a chilling thriller.”
