I'm surprised Christian Slater isn't making more mainstream movies these days. The guy has had a great career, and has made some fantastic movies, but it seems like he's struggling a bit finding decent film roles.
He's been cast in a new independent horror thriller called Playback. In the film he plays a sinister cop who is pivotal in exposing a small town's deepest, darkest secret.
The story sounds like it could be interesting, but I doubt this will be the film that helps jump start his career. Variety reports that the story is triggered by high school students digging into their town's infamous past and unwittingly unlocking an evil that preys upon their classmates.
The movie is set to be directed by Michael A. Nickles which is now shooting in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The film also stars Johnny Pacar, Toby Hemingway, Jonathan Keltz, Alessandra Torresani, Ambyr Childers and Daryl "Chill" Mitchell.
