Kiefer Sutherland (24) is set to star in action-thriller The Winter Kills from director John Stalberg Jr. (Crypto).
Sutherland will portray a disgraced cop pursuing the serial killer who murdered his partner ten years ago — and has resurfaced to kill again.
Written by Ben Floro Carney, the film is produced by Patrick Rizzotti, Paul Johansson, David Guglielmo, John Jr, Wyatt Russell, Oliver Hudson, Stalberg Jr and XYZ Films.
Pic is set to shoot this spring in New Jersey with debt financing to be provided by Blue Fox Financing. XYZ Films is also financing and will introduce the film to buyers at this week’s European Film Market in Berlin.
According to a logline from XYZ, The Winter Kills will see Sutherland playing a “disgraced cop [that] pursues the serial killer who murdered his partner ten years ago – and has resurfaced, killing again.” No further details about the plot of the film have been released, and Sutherland is the only cast member currently attached to the project. The Winter Kills was written by Ben Floro Carney, and the screenplay was plucked off a recent version of the Black List – an annual report of the most-liked scripts in Hollywood that have yet to be produced. The film, which is described as “Se7en meets Bad Lieutenant,” is produced by Patrick Rizzotti, Paul Johansson, David Guglielmo Wyatt Russell, Oliver Hudson, Stalberg, and XYZ.
