TURTURRO JOINS SECRET WINDOW
None other than writer/director David Koepp himself has informed IGN FilmForce of the latest addition to the cast of his next film, Secret Window. The project is based on Stephen King's Two Past Midnight: Secret Window, Secret Garden, and it is set-up at Columbia Pictures.
In an upcoming interview with IGN FilmForce, Koepp called Secret Window 'a very creepy little number about a writer who goes through a nasty divorce. While he's hiding out at a cabin in the woods, trying to get over it, he is stalked by a crazy redneck who says the writer stole his story. Johnny Depp plays the writer, John Turturro plays the redneck. We start shooting July 15.'
Depp's casting had been known but we're the first to report Turturro's involvement. His credits include Anger Management, Barton Fink, Do the Right Thing, Collateral Damage and Quiz Show. Turturro and Depp previously worked together on The Man Who Cried.
In related news, Lilja's Library posted the following casting information on the search for Secret Window's female lead, who is described as:
'AMY, age 30's, beautiful and hot, sultry, sometimes soft and feminine, sometimes tough as nails, smart, strong willed, determined, fights for what she wants, LEAD ROLE.'
