Vacancy in the City

Goon

Simon West has risen from the ashes of his latest film disaster "When A Stranger Calls" to direct Vacancy for Sony Screen Gems. Sex in the City star Sarah Jessica Parker has signed on to star in the project with Hal Lieberman producing.

The script, written by Mark L. Smith, is about a couple who check into a motel and, unaware there's a hidden camera, become the subjects of a snuff film. Parker will play the wife, who is still reeling from the death of her infant son.

Production is expected to begin this fall. The idea sounds like it could be good. But once again I can't get past the casting of Sarah Jessica Parker and Simon West directing. I guess we'll have to wait and hope that they make some movie magic together.
