Usually playing the lovable "good guy" characters like Shaun in Shaun of the Dead and Scotty in the recent Star Trek films, Simon Pegg will now take on a villainous role in the upcoming home invasion action-thriller titled Becky.
Today, Deadline reports that Pegg will star alongside Annabelle: Creation‘s Lulu Wilson in the film.
"The pic centers on Becky (Wilson), a rebellious 13-year-old who is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an effort to reconnect after her mother’s death. The trip takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (Pegg), invades the lake house. Becky decides to take matters into her own hands."
The film will be directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion (Bushwick).
Yale Productions’ Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman are producing with Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz of BoulderLight.
