Earlier this year the film adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s novel Red screened at Sundance Film Festival—a festival that’s pretty much in my backyard, but I was either too lazy or too tired to make the thirty-five mile drive and stand in line for tickets to see it. Maybe it was the standing-in-line part that kept me from seeing it. Probably.
I found the trailer for Red this morning and it looks pretty good. I probably should have bitten the bullet and seen it at Sundance…. If the trailer is any indication it appears to be a faithful adaptation of the novel. It was directed by Trygve Allister Diesen and Lucky McKee, written by Steven Susco, and stars Brian Cox and Tom Sizemore.
