Jessica Alba will be playing a prostitute who gets murdered in The Killer Inside Me, according to THR. Casey Affleck will play a West Texas sheriff who goes on a downward spiral from being a boring small-town cop into a ruthless, sociopathic murderer.
The film is based off the novel by author Jim Thompson and it has been made into a film before in 1976. The Mighty Heart director Michael Winterbottom will direct.
I can see where Alba is trying to take her career. She wasn’t getting taken as a serious actress with films such as The Love Guru and Good Luck Chuck, so she must have told her agent she wants the total opposite of what she has been doing. As a result she is currently filming drama An Invisible Sign of My Own where she plays a genius, and now she will be playing a prostitute.
Next we can expect her to play a schizophrenic drug addict followed by a lesbian serial killer. She will get an Oscar and we will take her seriously!
