Michelle Monaghan and Susan Sarandon are set to team up for the thriller Still of the Night. Exclusive Media announced today that it would produce and finance the pic, written and to be directed by Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines). Monaghan stars as a career woman who sets out to investigate the mysterious disappearance of her sister. She ends up matching wits with a devious criminal, played by Sarandon, in order to save her and her sister. If memory serves me right, Sarandon has never played such a straight-up villain before (I’m counting Stepmom as a half-villain). It should be interesting to see the two talented actresses square off.
Mostow’s last film, the 2009 sci-fi actioner Surrogates, wasn’t exactly a runaway hit with critics or audiences, but he’s off to a great start on Still of the Night by nabbing actors of Monaghan and Sarandon’s caliber. Hit the jump to read the press release.
