Synopsis for Barker's Midnight Meat Train
What already had me was the unusual casting line up with Bradley Cooper , Vinnie Jones, Brooke Shields and Leslie Bibb to name but a few, and the combination of Barker writing and Ryuhei Kitamura from Versus directing.
The plot synopsis comes from ShockTillYouDrop.com through Hot Movie News:
Next stop, death.
When his latest body of work – provocative, nighttime studies of the city and its inhabitants -- earns struggling photographer Leon Kaufman (Bradley Cooper) interest from a prominent art gallerist (Brooke Shields), she propels him to get grittier and show the darker side of humanity for his upcoming debut at her downtown art space.
Believing he's finally on track for success, Leon's obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of a serial killer, Mahogany (Vinnie Jones), the subway murderer who stalks late-night commuters -- ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways imaginable.
With his concerned girlfriend Maya (Leslie Bibb) fearing for his life, Leon's relentless fascination with Mahogany lures him further and further into the bowels of the subways and ultimately into an abyss of pure evil – inadvertently pulling Maya right along with him.
Sounds quite cool, but I'm really keen to see what Kitamura makes of all this and how he brings his style to the story, I'm also keen to see Jones as the baddie, it's certainly an unusual casting mix.
