More news has finally arrived regarding filmmaker Lucky McKee’s new project ‘The Woman’. The adaptation of the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name will see McKee reunite with actress Angela Bettis (below) following their work together on ‘May’.
“THE WOMAN is based on the upcoming collaborative novel by Lucky McKee and award-winning horror author Jack Ketchum, dubbed “the scariest guy in America” by Stephen King. The hardcover edition will be published by Bloodletting Press in January 2011. The character of “The Woman” comes from the film OFFSPRING, also based on the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name, which was released on by Lionsgate/Ghosthouse Underground on October 6th, 2009.”
Ok so nothing overly interesting there admittedly but joining Bettis on the cast list are actors Pollyanna McIntosh and Sean Bridgers.
Here is the full plot summary…
“The Woman is the last surviving member of a feral clan that has roamed the Northeast Coast for decades. When the last of her family is killed in a battle with the police, The Woman finds herself alone, severely wounded and vulnerable. Unfortunately, she is now a far too easy prey for local hunter, successful country lawyer and seriously disturbed family man Christopher Cleek. With his twisted set of ideals, Cleek decides to embark upon a deranged project – to capture her and “break” The Woman – a decision that will soon threaten the lives of Cleek, his family and The Woman.”
