Kate Hudson and Jim Thompson??

In what appears, at least to me, strange casting, Kate Hudson has signed on for the upcoming adaptation of James Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me.

Thompson was a master of Noir and lived in the darkest of the dark, Kate Hudson often stars in C gr…D grade comedies with Matthew McConaughey and Dane Cook. To be fair, she was quite good in Almost Famous (Nine years ago).

Also coming on board with Miz Hudson is Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping, Independance Day), Ned Beatty (Deliverance, Superman) and Elias Koteas (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, upcoming Shutter Island).

Casey Affleck and Jessica Alba have already been announced, with Michael Winterbottom directing.

Filming should start in late March.
