Director Jack Perez dropped Fango a line with details on SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE, an offbeat serial-killer/revenge shocker he’s just about to start lensing. Scripted by Ryan A. Levin, who made the horror shorts THE FIFTH (an award-winner at Fantasia, Fantastic Fest and other festivals) and TOUR DE FRIGHT, the movie is executive-produced by John Landis and stars Kevin Corrigan, whose credits include THE LAST WINTER and a recent recurring role on FRINGE (and playing a nerdy Fango fan in WALKING AND TALKING), in the title role.
When it came to casting SOME GUY, “Right away I thought of Kevin Corrigan [pictured] for the leading role of Ken, a suicidal illustrator who violently strikes out against a group of vicious bullies who tortured him in high school,” Perez says. “Kevin and I had always wanted to do something together, and he soon signed on, followed by the amazing Karen Black as Ken’s mother, Lucy Davis from the original THE OFFICE and SHAWN OF THE DEAD as Ken’s would-be girlfriend, Barry Bostwick as the wacked-out small-town sheriff trying to catch the killer, child actor Ariel Gade from DARK WATER and ALIENS VS. PREDATOR—REQUIEM as Ken’s daughter and KIDS’ Leo Fitzpatrick as Ken’s best friend. I count myself lucky to have secured such a fine cast.”
