After two roles of a liife time (Million Dollar Baby, and Boy's Don't Cry) Hilary Swank has nowhere to go now but down I suppose.
One of Swank's next movie will be The Reaping, a biblical horror film coming out this november. This film deals with Swank's character, a former missionary who after the death of her family struggles with God and comes to the conclusion that God does not exist and all his miracles can be explained away in a scientific way.
It is for these convictions she gets pulled into a small Louisianna town when it appears that they are experiencing the 10 plagues in their own time.
If you watch the preview for this film (linked here) you will see that this film begins to look real ridiculous when the horror element is thrown in with what looks like a small girl playing the child of Satan who appears to be causing the plagues to happen ("Evil has a Savior" is the last thing they say in the preview).
Also, this film officially has the worse tagline of any movie I can remember...it's long and incredibly wordy. Do they really need to use the word bizarre? I understand plot-wise why they would say "many believed to have been the Ten Biblical Plauges" but come on, it's a tagline.
The film is directed by Stephen Hopkins who directed and produced many episodes in the first season of 24 and the highly acclaimed television film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. The film is written by Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes the writing team who's most well known credit is the recent horror film House of Wax.
Swank has a triple play of film coming out this fall/winter with The Black Dahlia in September, The Reaping in November, and Freedom Writeres in January.
First aware of this film and it's tagline from Stale Popcorn.
