In front of the camera, Peter Facinelli is often known as the patriarch of the Cullen family in the Twilight films as well as his regular role of Dr. Fitch "Coop" Cooper in the comedy-drama series Nurse Jackie. However he's actually directed a couple films, namely 2018's Breaking & Exiting along with the 2020 film The Vanished. Now, he's set to direct his third feature film, a crime thriller titled Headhunter.
From a script penned by Rich Ronat, the story centers around a twisted murder that sends three detectives on a whirlwind investigation. Along the way, dark secrets will be revealed that will turn everyone into a possible suspect. Set to be distributed by The Exchange who possess the worldwide rights. The company will introduce the title to buyers at the upcoming 2021 virtual Cannes Market while the company's representatives Brian O’Shea, Nat McCormick, and Caddy Vanasirikul will executive produce the project. O'Shea had this to say on announcing Facinelli as the director:
“We are very excited to be working again with Peter again, not only is he a consummate professional and pleasant to work with, but after my buyers screened The Vanished during the Berlin Market they wanted to know what he had coming out next. To me that is a very good sign that we should be working with him again."
Headhunter will be produced by RJ Collins and Sean Lydiard along with Mainstay Entertainment’s Ray Moheet and Norman Aladjem. Stay tuned!
