In 2007, Casey Affleck was a force to be reckoned with as he landed a one-two punch with “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Affleck makes his return next summer in Michael Winterbottom’s “The Killer Inside Me,” based off Jim Thompson’s novel. The story follows a bored, small-town cop who decides to liven up his life with a little sociopathy and murder followed by the fun of covering up his tracks.
The trailer from the American Film Market has popped up online and at nearly six-minutes long, it gives away most of the film so if you’re looking to go in cold, do not watch it. But I’ll tell you up front that Affleck looks as charming and devious as ever. Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Simon Baker, Ned Beatty, and Bill Pullman round out the cast but it’s clear that this is Affleck’s film and that’s why I’m excited to see this film, even if I saw the synopsis in visual form with this trailer. It will probably vanish from the YouTube soon so if you want to catch, hit the jump and watch it now.
