Kevin Bacon’s upcoming revenge thriller, “Death Sentence” is due out in August, and images and a poster have finally popped up onto the net. Directed by James Wan from the novel by Brian Garfield (with scripting by Ian Jeffers), the film stars Kevin Bacon as Nick Hume, “a mild-mannered executive with a perfect life, until one gruesome night he witnesses something that changes him forever. Transformed by grief, Hume eventually comes to the disturbing conclusion that no length is too great when protecting his family.” Basically, Kevin goes all “Death Wish” on the bad guys.
“Death Sentence” stars Kevin Bacon, Aisha Tyler, Kelly Preston, Stuart Lafferty, John Goodman, and is due out August 31st, 2007. And get this: John Goodman plays the main bad guy, a drug dealer, in the movie!
Director James Wan is known mostly as one of the brains behind the “Saw” franchise, and he was also the director on the killer doll movie “Dead Silence”. This will be his first test to see if he can break out of the horror genre.
