The film will focus on John Callisto (Morgan), a retired recluse who gave up his life as a homicide detective after he almost became the victim of a serial killer. He enjoys his seclusion until a nosy bugger of a journalist tracks him down. "As the two confront each other, dark secrets from both their pasts come to light."
Is it too much to think of this as a more real-world view of The Comedian, had he not be slain? This character probably didn't go around sadistically killing people himself, and there's not a costumed warrior in sight, but the idea of the gruff and tough man dealing with his past -- the ravaged survivor -- fits the bill, and it'll be nice to see Morgan settle into that mindset for more than just a geek movie intro.
The film will go on sale at Berlin this year, and is set to shoot this May.
