Today we received news across our desks about a new horror film featuring two iconic members of the Hollywood community. Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend’s Wedding, The Family Stone) has been tapped to star in the horror film, TRICK, from director Patrick Lussier (Dracula 2000, My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry) and writer Todd Farmer (Jason X, My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry). Get more details on the inside!
From The Press Release
Ellen Wander, CEO of Film Bridge International (Winnie Mandela, Misconduct, Marshall, and Spinning Man) and Gabriela Revilla Lugo of Revek Entertainment (The Tribes of Palos Verdes, The Last Weekend in May, Gone: VR 360) announce the upcoming feature Trick, a horror thriller to be directed by genre master Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry, Terminator: Genisys) and written by Todd Farmer, alongside Lussier.
The story centers on an elusive serial killer, who descends upon a small town annually, bringing terror and death. He is responsible for gruesome murders year after year, each in different jurisdictions and seemingly unrelated. No one believes this could be the same killer. Detective Denver has faced Trick once before – he shot and killed him. Or so everyone keeps telling him. However, Denver knows Trick is out there and he’s coming back for revenge.
“After much discussion with Director Lussier, Dermot was the only choice for this role and we are ecstatic that he was able to take on the project.” stated Wander.
Dermot Mulroney (The Family Stone, The Wedding Date) plays Detective Mike Denver. Denver puts his works before anything else in life, including his own marriage but his no-nonsense attitude and steadfast approach make him a perfect fit for a career in law enforcement. Against everyone else’s judgment, he is convinced that Trick is not only alive and well, but the one responsible for a series of gruesome murders recurring over several years.
Director Patrick Lussier’s lengthy and accomplished résumé includes several of the most successful horror films and television programs in recent years. His eye for detail was instrumental in editing the numerous Wes Craven films, including the famous Scream franchise, Red Eye, New Nightmare, and Cursed to name just a few.
Prolific actor Mulroney has starred in over 70 films in a career spanning more than 3 decades. Most recently, he filmed an episode for the highly anticipated Amazon series “Homecoming” starring Julia Roberts, his co-star in the box office hit My Best Friend’s Wedding.
Writer Todd Farmer has worked with Patrick Lussier previously. He has written several genre films including Jason X, My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry (alongside Lussier).
Ellen S. Wander of Film Bridge International will produce and handle worldwide sales for the film. Gabriela Lugo will also serve as producer. Additionally, Film Bridge International has partnered Chimney’s Fredrik Zander to handle post-production.
Dermot Mulroney is repped by WME. Patrick Lussier is repped by Paradigm Talent Agency.
