Take a peek at the feature adaptation of Jim Thompson's novel which features Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson among others.
An extended look at "The Killer Inside Me" has come out in the form of a promo trailer. Almost six minutes in running time, the sneak peek unravels what this drama thriller is all about and gives out a look at Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson in characters. Some footage in the trailer are quite NSFW.
In the movie set in the 1950s, Affleck stars as Lou Ford, a West Texas deputy sheriff who spirals downward. Starting as a bored small-town cop, he slowly turns into a ruthless, sociopathic murderer trying to cement his innocence when the evidence looks suspicious. Alba and Hudson, in the meantime, portray a prostitute and Lou's girlfriend respectively.
"The Killer Inside Me" is based on Jim Thompson's 1952 novel which is described as "one of the most blistering and uncompromising crime novels ever written." Michael Winterbottom, the director of "A Mighty Heart", takes on the helming part, and Simon Baker, Ned Beatty and Bill Pullman are among the supporting cast. While no distributor has signed on just yet, the movie aims for a summer 2010 U.S. release.
