Home Entertainment Director: Morgan O’Neill Screenwriter: Morgan O’Neill, Paul Leyden Starring: John Cusack, Dallas Roberts, Sonya Walger, Mae Whitman, Katherine Waterston, Mageina Tovah, Cindy Sampson, Conrad Pla MPAA Rating: R (for strong violence including disturbing images, language throughout and some sexual material)
Detective Mike Fletcher, a rugged and obsessive police officer, and his partner Kelsey Walker, are on the trail of a serial killer who prowls the streets targeting young streetwalkers. When his teenage daughter disappears, Fletcher discovers that the killer has kidnapped her after mistaking her for a prostitute. Fletcher’s obsession goes into overdrive when he drops all professional restraint to get the killer and save his daughter.
If you ever find yourself kidnapped by a serial killer intent on impregnating you and starting a family, you better hope that the cop on the case to find you isn’t John Cusack because he will suck at doing so. In the psychological thriller The Factory, Cusack demonstrates the reasons why he should stay away from serious films and why he’s definitely a better actor than a hard-nose detective.
The Factory follows Detective Mike Fletcher (Cusack) as he and his partner Kelsey (Jennifer Carpenter) search for the person responsible for the mysterious disappearances of prostitutes throughout Buffalo. Just as the case gets shut down by the department due to lack of evidence, Fletcher’s rebellious young daughter, played by Mae Whitman, is kidnapped by the same person Fletcher is hell-bent on finding.
Warner Home Video has set a February 19th release date for The Factory, the thriller starring John Cusack which has been sitting on the shelf for a few years now.
When the film made its debut this year at the Los Angeles Screamfest, we suspected it was going to finally get a release – how wide it would go was unknown. Would the studio opt for a limited theatrical run? I guess not.
Jennifer Carpenter also stars in this Morgan O’Neill-directed flick.
Yesterday, it was revealed the Dark Castle production, The Factory, was finally going to see the light of day via the festival circuit, starting with next months’ Screamfest.
While we’ve shown you only one or two images from this dark thriller starring John Cusack and Jennifer Carpenter, a few new images have surfaced.
Set in present-day Buffalo, the film follows a detective who discovers his daughter has been kidnapped. There’s been a rash of missing girls in the city and the detective has to go to a very dark place to find his daughter.
Los Angeles’ Screamfest is kicking off its 12th annual event on October 12th through October 21st at LA Live Regal Cinemas (1000 W. Olympic Blvd. LA, CA).
This year’s films include Morgan O’Neill’s The Factory starring John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter and Mae Whitman. You might recall that this one’s been sitting on the shelf for a bit, so Screamfest will be the first place to check it out on the big screen.
The first wave of titles to hit Screamfest 2012 are as follows…
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…
