Diane Kruger to star opposite Ray Nicholson in Out of the Blue
Set to be directed by Neil LaBute, the film is touted as a contemporary tale of passionate love, deceit, and the perfect murder
Actor Diane Kruger is all set to star opposite Ray Nicholson in the upcoming indie thriller Out of the Blue.
Set to be directed by Neil LaBute (The Wicker Man, In the Company of Men), the film is touted as a contemporary tale of passionate love, deceit, and the perfect murder. The story follows Connor (Nicholson), a man whose dull life is transformed into a thrilling fantasy world thanks to the seductive Marilyn (Kruger).
As the logline goes, "He plunges headlong into the adulterous affair; the ex-con with a heart of gold seemingly destined for the raven-haired trophy wife. The only hitch in their idyllic new life together? Marilyn's trapped in a nightmare with an abusive husband and vulnerable stepdaughter. Desperate and with a history of violence, Connor will do almost anything to see him dead."
Out of the Blue will be produced by Berry Meyerowitz and Tara Craig with Jeff Sackman, Larry Greenberg, Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, and Joe Listhaus serving as executive producers
Kruger is best known for starring in titles such as Troy, National Treasure, Inglorious Bastards, In The Fade, and so on. She will next star in The 355, alongside Jessica Chastain, Pen'lope Cruz and Lupita Nyong'o.
Nicholson, the son of Hollywood veteran Jack Nicholson, was recently seen in the Oscar-nominated movie Promising Young Woman.
