Kevin James Terrorizes a Young Girl in Upcoming Thriller ‘Becky’
Kevin James is changing his onscreen persona as a comedic pratfalling goofball into a creepy fugitive leading a gang of killers in the upcoming movie Becky.
“In Becky, Kevin delivers a chilling performance in his first villainous role, especially playing against rising star Lulu Wilson in an epic head-to-head battle,” said Quiver Co-President Berry Meyerowitz. “We are thrilled to bring Becky to audiences so they can see Kevin in a whole new light.”
The film follows spunky and rebellious Becky (Wilson) brought on a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father Jeff in an effort to try to reconnect. The trip immediately takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (James), suddenly invade the home.
Kiosk DVD rental giant Redbox and Quiver Distribution have teamed up to acquire the North American rights to the thriller starring James, Lulu Wilson (Annabelle: Creation), Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale), and Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes).
VH1 host and Community star Joel McHale is also appearing in the film as the titular character’s father.
Becky is written by Nick Morris (The Evil Eye), Ruckus Skye and Lane Skye (The Devil to Pray, Rattle the Cage) and directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (Cooties, Bushwick).
Becky will be released On Digital and On Demand on June 5, 2020.
