Film Bridge International and Revek Entertainment have announced the upcoming feature Trick, a horror thriller to be directed by genre master Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry, Terminator: Genisys) and written by Todd Farmer, alongside Lussier.
The story centers on an elusive serial killer, who descends upon a small town annually, bringing terror and death. He is responsible for gruesome murders year after year, each in different jurisdictions and seemingly unrelated. No one believes this could be the same killer. Detective Denver has faced Trick once before - he shot and killed him. Or so everyone keeps telling him. However, Denver knows Trick is out there and he's coming back for revenge.
"After much discussion with Director Lussier, Dermot was the only choice for this role and we are ecstatic that he was able to take on the project." stated Wander.
Dermot Mulroney (The Family Stone, The Wedding Date) plays Detective Mike Denver. Denver puts his works before anything else in life, including his own marriage but his no-nonsense attitude and steadfast approach makes him a perfect fit for a career in law enforcement. Against everyone else's judgement, he is convinced that Trick is not only alive and well, but the one responsible for a series of gruesome murders recurring over several years.
Director Patrick Lussier's lengthy and accomplished résumé includes several of the most successful horror films and television programs in recent years. His eye for detail was instrumental in editing the numerous Wes Craven films, including the famous Scream franchise, Red Eye, New Nightmare, and Cursed to name just a few.
Writer Todd Farmer has worked with Patrick Lussier previously. He has written several genre films including Jason X, My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry (alongside Lussier).
Ellen S. Wander of Film Bridge International will produce and handle worldwide sales for the film. Gabriela Lugo will also serve as producer. Additionally, Film Bridge International has partnered Chimney's Fredrik Zander to handle post-production.
