Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba are set to star in Goldfinch Studios’ “Killers Anonymous” for Martin Owen.
Currently lensing in London, the film explores a world that exists beneath the day to day, the restraint and order. For every life there is a death, and for every person there is an itch that only the few scratch; the dark voice that tells people to blow out the flame of another’s life. You might walk down a street and brush shoulders with a stranger and exchange a polite smile, completely unaware that stranger is picturing themselves stood above your bleeding body as you draw your final breath. There is a place for those people. They have all killed, they all think about killing, some want to stop, some want to talk and some just need to listen.
Meetings are held regularly by an understanding leader who nurtures and guides the group through their shared experiences and temptations. They receive a message, telling them where and when, and there within the trust of the circle, they share. But on this particular night, the city has been rocked by the failed assassination of a Senator, and the brutal and professional demise of his attempted assassin. A chain of events is already in motion as the group congregates for their late-night session and the very fabric of the group begins to unravel as one layer of betrayal leads to another. (Deadline)
