I wrote briefly about Clint Eastwood’s upcoming film The Changeling, in yesterday’s column 55 Must See Movies of 2008. It looks like a few more actors have been cast in the project: Jeffrey Donovan, Colm Feore and John Malkovich.
A mother’s (Angelina Jolie) prayer for her kidnapped son to return home is answered, though it doesn’t take long for her to suspect the boy who comes back is not hers. The woman is thrown into an insane asylum for disagreeing with the LAPD. When it seems that her real son has been murdered by a child serial killer and the child returned admits to fraud, she takes her case to the city council and takes down the mayor, the police chief and several corrupt officers, concurrently sparking changes in the insanity legislation. Donovan will play a police captain, Feore the chief of police and Malkovich a reverend.
Eastwood has a great track record (if that wasn’t an obvious observation, I don’t know what is), and this sounds like his next hit. The Changeling is set to hit theaters on November 7th 2008.
