Some time ago, various sites erroneously reported the John Cusack thriller The Factory was making a small theatrical run. That wasn’t the case at all. In fact, at the time of the report, the film was exactly where it was a year ago and the year before that: Sitting on a shelf.
The Factory, directed by Morgan O’Neill, was expected to hit theaters in 2009 from Dark Castle/Warner Bros. until it was hit with a series of delays. Well, we have finally heard where the film will wind up…
Sources tell us this title will be heading direct-to-DVD, likely this year, thus ending its long “unreleased” status.
Cusack plays Detective Mike Fletcher, a rugged and obsessive cop, who is on the trail of a serial killer who prowls the streets targeting young streetwalkers. When Fletcher’s teenage daughter disappears, he discovers the killer has kidnapped her after mistaking her for a hooker. His obsession goes into overdrive when he drops all professional restraint to get to the killer and save his daughter.
