Jay Baruchel’s upcoming adaptation of graphic novel Random Acts Of Violence has just added two more cast members.
According to Deadline, Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy) and Jordana Brewster (Fast & Furious) have both joined the film. They will star alongside Niamh Wilson (Maps To The Stars) and Baruchel.
The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray. Read the full synopsis here:
Comic book creator Todd Walkley (Williams), along with his girlfriend Kathy (Brewster), assistant Aurora (Wilson), and best friend and Hard Calibre Comics owner Ezra (Baruchel) as they go on a road trip. On their way from Toronto to New York for Comic-Con, bad things start to happen and people start getting killed in a fashion eerily similar to the kills portrayed in his Slasherman comic. It becomes clear that a very avid fan is out there following them and hurting people, and using Todd’s comic as inspiration. As the bodies pile up, and Todd’s friends and family become targets and victims themselves, Todd will be forced into taking responsibility for everything his ideas have wrought.
As well as starring, Baruchel is also on writing and directing duties. His long-time writing partner Jesse Chabot is penning the script with him.
Canadian distribution Elevation Pictures is producing the film, along with Noah Segal and Randy Manis. Jesse Williams, Jesse Chabot, Ricky Tollman, Jonathan Bronfman, Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray are all serving as executive producers. Ariella Naymark is a co-producer and Elevation will distribute in Canada.
The film has just started production in Toronto, and is set to conclude in September.
