Simon Pegg is most well known for his funny, good guy roles like in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Star Trek, but now he’s gearing up for a serious role, as the villain in the upcoming action-thriller Becky. Pegg will star alongside Annabelle: Creation‘s Lulu Wilson, Deadline reports.
The film “centers on Becky (Wilson), a rebellious 13-year-old who is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an effort to reconnect after her mother’s death. The trip takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (Pegg), invades the lake house. Becky decides to take matters into her own hands.”
Directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion, Becky is from Yale Productions and BoulderLight Pictures.
