Seeing 'Red' with a New Jack Ketchum Movie   

April 29, 2008 Two of the better direct-to-DVD horror films of the past year have been base on Jack Ketchum works: "The Girl Next Door" and "The Lost." Now, antoher is on the way: "Red."

Variety reports:

Magnolia Pictures has scooped up North American rights to Trygve Allister Diesen and Lucky McKee’s thriller “Red.” Screenplay by Stephen Susco is based on Jack Ketchum’s novel of the same name.

A Sundance 2008 preem, revenge drama stars Brian Cox and Tom Sizemore and features Robert Englund and Amanda Plummer. Project was initiated by McKee (“The Woods”) and finished by Diesen.

Tale of retribution begins with the search of an elderly man (Cox) for justice when his dog is murdered, ultimately leading to a series of unsavory and violent events.

“Red” is an “archetypal story of right vs. wrong,” said Magnolia prexy Eamonn Bowles.
