Famke Janssen Cast in 100 FeetGoon
AITH has just recieved word from Eric Red the writer/director of the new film 100 Feet has cast Famke Janssen in lead role of Marnie. Eric Red is best known as a screenwriter for some great films including The Hitcher, Near Dark and Body Parts. After eleven years in the dark he is finally coming back as director and writer for 100 Feet.
In the film a young woman, Marnie Watson (Famke Janssen), is granted early release from her prison sentence for manslaughter (killing her husband - a violent NYC cop - in self defense) on condition she wear an electronic ankle bracelet and remain within her home, effectively under house arrest, for the remainder of her sentence. Her late husband's partner keeps tabs on her from a patrol car parked across the street, hoping she'll violate probation and he can send her back to prison. But the 100-foot radius her ankle bracelet allows isn't the worst of her problems. Her dead husband --now a malevolent ghost--is still in the house, where he died -- intent on savage revenge.
No word on an expected release date but shooting is scheduled to begin this coming April in Brooklyn, New York and Budapest, Hungary. This is big news for the production and is definetly a step in the right direction.
