Adaptation of the Noir Thriller Meeting Evil to Begin Filming in New Orleans

Meeting Evil by Thomas Berger
More information about the book

Earlier today we reported that Brad Pitt will be starring in a film adaptation of Cogan's Trade to be set in New Orleans. Now we learn that another adaptation will be filmed in the Crescent City: Meeting Evil.

Scene Louisiana is reporting that Samuel L. Jackson, Luke Wilson and Leslie Bibb have been cast in the noir thriller, based on the 1992 novel by Thomas Berger. Filming is set to begin next month.

In the book, John Felton (Luke Wilson) meets evil late one Monday morning when the doorbell rings. Standing on the front porch is a stranger. He wears expensive running shoes and a baseball cap and calls himself Richie (Samuel L. Jackson). He tells John his car has stalled and asks for help. An altercation at the gas station leads to a shocking crime as violence begets violence. At the end of this harrowing day, John returns home to find Richie ensconced in his living room, chatting up his wife (Leslie Bibb). The evil has somehow seeped into his life. Thus begins the transformation of an unremarkable husband and father of two into a desperate man willing to go to any length to protect his family from the darkness that threatens them.
