EXCLUSIVE: Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman, Switched at Birth alum Vanessa Marano, Natasha Henstridge (Diggstown, Species 1 & 2), James Lastovic (Insatiable, Days of Our Lives), and Annabel Barrett (Detachment, Ocean’s Rising) are set to star in This Game’s Called Murder, an indie thriller written and directed by Adam Sherman.
The pic is being described as an absurdist story full of violence, betrayal, and sex set in a world ruled by technology and social media. It’s a modern, dark-humored tale of greed, romance, and lost innocence in consumer-crazed, alienated society that functions as a harsh critique of society today without taking itself too seriously.
