Check This Out: Jonathan Liebesman's The Killing Room Poster
Our friends over at ShockTillYouDrop have served up the last poster debut of 2008. The poster is for Jonathan Liebesman's The Killing Room, a thriller premiering at Sundance in the Park City at Midnight section. You may recognize Liebesman's name, as he directed Darkness Falls and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and is attached to direct the upcoming Battle: Los Angeles. The film is a psychological thriller about four people who sign up for a research study only to discover that they are now subjects of a brutal, classified government program. Definitely check out this rather interesting poster.
Clea DuVall, Timothy Hutton, Nick Cannon, and Shea Whigham star as the four individuals who join the program. They're also joined by Peter Stormare and Chloë Sevigny. We've also included a few photos from the film beneath the poster below to give you a better idea of the look and feel of it. Interested?
As a group, they are presented with a series of questions and a finite window of time by which each of them must submit a unique numerical answer. Presumably the subject who is furthest from the correct response will be "removed" from the experiment. They soon come to realize that, in this lethal psychological game, the correct answer is not always the right one. Behind the scenes, the mysterious and brooding Dr. Phillips (Stormare) deviously pulls the strings as the most recent addition to his team, military psychologist Ms. Reilly (Sevigny), is emotionally torn by her first assignment.
The Killing Room is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, of Darkness Falls and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning previously. The screenplay was co-written by first-time writer Gus Krieger and Ann Peacock (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, Nights in Rodanthe). The film will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January where it will be looking for a US distributor. Expect to hear plenty more about The Killing Room in 2009!
