Director Mark Romanek and Ben Stiller Hear The Voices

I love Mark Romanek. His undeniably clever 2002 thriller “One Hour Photo” is a fantastic film, and it actually holds up incredibly well to repeat viewings. That is, of course, if you can stomach watching a slightly unbalanced photo lab employee gradually lose his sanity more than once. Why Romanek has waited so long to lense another movie is perplexing, especially considering how immensely talented the guy is. However, if the story coming out of Slashfilm is worth anything, the wait may be over. Comedian Ben Stiller is set to star in the sporatic filmmaker’s upcoming chilller “The Voices,” a picture which finds Stiller portraying a factory worker who accidentally murders one of his co-workers. In the wake of the homicide, Stiller’s character begins taking advice from his pets in order to cover his tracks.

Sound familiar? If you’ve seen writer/director Steve Cuden’s underrated 2002 horror/comedy “Lucky,” you may experience a bit of cinematic deja vu. Regardless, it’s good to know that Romanek is still interested in making movies, even if they are powered by borrowed ideas.

You can investigate the “Lucky” trailer for yourself below.




About Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.
