Bryan Cranston & Alice Eve Join Cast of Indie Thriller 'Eye of Winter'
It looks like Bryan Cranston is going low key for his next film project after having a pivotal supporting role in Ben Affleck's Oscar contender Argo this year. Variety reports Cranston has joined the cast of Eye of Winter, a thriller that is also adding Alice Eve (She's Out of My League) and Logan Marshall Green (Prometheus). In the film from Children of Invention director Tze Chun, a struggling motel owner (Eve), along with her daughter (Ursula Parker from "Louie"), is taken hostage by a nearly blind career criminal (Cranston) to be his eyes as he tries to retrieve his cash from a crooked cop (Marshall-Green).

This could very well be one of those thrillers that debuts at Sundance, just as Children of Invention did back in 2009. And with a cast like this, it means a talented director like Tze Chun will probably get more attention. Cranston has been more than acclaimed for his turn on "Breaking Bad" and Eve will be seen next summer in Star Trek Into Darkness. Meanwhile, Green is even more recognizable after his turn in Ridley Scott's divisive Alien prequel Prometheus. If anything, it'll be great to see Cranston playing a blind villain.
