Samuel L. Jackson, Luke Wilson, and Leslie Bibb Meeting Evil
Three actors have been attached to the upcoming big screen adaptation of the 1992 Thomas Berger novel, Meeting Evil. Luke Wilson will star as “a depressed real estate agent who has recently been fired from his job,” reports TheWrap.com, who crosses the path of Samuel L. Jackson’s character, a mysterious stranger in need of some help. Leslie Bibb will play the wife of Wilson’s character. Chris Fisher will direct.
Being a good Samaritan, it seems, can have dark consequences. Here is how the Library Journal (via Amazon.com) describes the Berger novel.
Answering his door one morning, solidly middle-class John Felton finds a scruffy-looking man whose car is in need of a push. Responding helpfully despite his misgivings, John sets in motion a nightmarish series of events in which he becomes the unwitting accomplice of Richie Maranville, a psychotic criminal just released from a mental hospital. During their day-long crime spree, the two develop a curiously symbiotic relationship, with John ultimately discovering the dark, irrational side of himself he has long denied. While almost coming to believe Richie’s assertion that they are psychic brothers, he makes a decision in the novel’s final scene that lifts him forever above the “moral triviality” of his alter ego. This is a precisely rendered, excruciatingly suspenseful tale of psychological duality. For most collections.

Luke Wilson’s latest roles include Henry Poole is Here and the 2010 American remake of the comedy Death at a Funeral. Jackson recently appeared in The Other Guys and will reprise his role of Marvel’s Nick Fury in Captain America: The First Avenger. Coincidentally, Leslie Bibb portrayed reporter Christine Everhart in Iron Man 2 and will reprise that role in The Avengers.
