Guy Pearce, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Cloris Leachman are Mis-Fits
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Guy Pearce is set to play a “necro-detective” that searches for the spirits of dead people in the wacky comedy MIS-FITS. For anyone that’s followed Guy Pearce over the years and continue to be frustrated that he isn’t a bigger star, then that synopsis and character should put a smile on your face. I feel like it’s been too long since Pearce really had a character he could sink his teeth into and just go crazy with. And I’m sick of seeing him in bit parts; the guy can carry his movie, he just needs the right opportunity.
The film will be directed by L.D. Napier, who will also direct. Previously, Napier had only written books and plays. Joining Pearce in the film are Seymour Cassel, Cloris Leachman, Virginie Ledoyen and Catalina Sandino Moreno. Producer Doug Claybourne described the film as “a wacky comedy in the tone of Harold and Maude”. I’m not sure how that will work, but with Pearce attached, it should be a good ride.
