Jersey Boys' Mike Doyle is set to star in The Last Word, a paranormal thriller from director Simon Rumley. He joins Erin Cummings and Sean Patrick Flannery, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Peter Facinelli and Rob DeFranco of A7SLE Filmsare producing the film alongside Boss Media's Eric Gores and Frank Mancuso Jr.
Filming started this week in Shreveport Louisiana on The Last Word which is based on true events. Ben Katai wrote the screenplay which tells of the aftermath endured by the participants in the trial of a young man in Texas who was shockingly wrongly convicted and executed for the rape and murder of a nun. Before he's sent off to the next world, he curses those who sent him to his demise, and after a while, those involved in the case, from jurors to witnesses, all start biting the dust. Doyle plays one of the juror who, after his son's life is in danger, tries to prove that the wrong person was executed in an effort to save him. Flanery plays the district attorney and Cummings is in as Doyle's wife.
