Although from a British perspective it’s tough to imagine all that many people wanting to pay to watch a movie about hunting deer, shooting things is popular in the States and so you can get a film like The Rut. The movie now has a new cast member, as Variety reports that Ray Liotta is set to take on the villain role in director Karyn Kusama’s (Jennifer’s Body) film.
Chloe Moretz is playing the lead role in the movie, which is described as a mix between Whale Rider and Winter’s Bone. The story follows a young girl who sets out on a lone deer hunt in the woods to impress her father (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Ray Liotta will play an obsessive bow hunter who considers Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character his bitter rival.
The film will shoot later this year for release next year.
