Star Trek Beyond‘s Simon Pegg has signed on along with Lulu Wilson to star in Becky, an “independent action-thriller.”
“Wilson will star as the rebellious 13-year-old Becky, who is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an effort to try to reconnect after her mother’s death. The trip immediately takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (Pegg), suddenly invade the lake house. Becky decides to take matters into her own hands.”
Becky will be directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion. It will be produced by Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, Raphael Margules, and J.D. Lifshitz.
Principal photography on Becky will begin this summer.
