Dark Castle’s THE FACTORY is another cop-pursuing-a-serial-killer film from actor-turned-director Morgan O’Neill. The movie—which stars 1408’s John Cusack and DEXTER’s Jennifer Carpenter—is set up to be released by Warner Bros, but was pulled from its original January 2011 release date.
Shock Till You Drop posted the first image from the film yesterday, while FANGORIA has a few exclusive quotes from THE FACTORY’s veteran genre producer Don Carmody (SKINWALKERS, GOTHIKA, ORPHAN, RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE, etc.), who supervised the film’s shoot in Vancouver and Montreal back in 2009. “It’s about a cop played by John Cusack who’s been tracking a serial killer unsuccessfully for a number of years,” Carmody tells us. “The serial killer appears to have been dormant for awhile, and they’re basically trying to get him to shut down his investigation, the powers that be, and then his daughter goes missing with the same kind of MO. So he kind of has to go around the system to track down what’s been going on.” Carpenter plays Cusack’s partner Kelsey Walker in the film.
The reason for the film’s long gestation and delayed release, Carmody says, stems from Dark Castle producer Joel Silver’s perfectionism and enormous workload. “It’s because Joel puts his imprint on all of the pictures coming out of Dark Castle, and he was just backed up so. WHITEOUT was a long time in post, ORPHAN was very quick in post. I think it’s who can get his attention. Then he was busy with SHERLOCK HOLMES and NINJA ASSASSIN. He’s a studio in his own right. Dark Castle doesn’t have a lot of people. He basically works on the shows as he can budget his time.”
A new opening date hasn’t been announced for THE FACTORY yet, but stay tuned for more info.
