I'm loving the recent surge, and renewed interest, in actor Michael Biehn's work. The Terminator and Aliens star has always delivered strong, impassioned performances, and his turn in the much celebrated The Divide is no exception. It's especially cool to hear that Biehn's directorial debut, The Victim (which he also wrote), has just been picked up by Anchor Bay for distribution. Having interviewed the actor several times, I've always found him to be a good-hearted, humble guy, with an infectious sense of humor. And one of the best parts of my job is when I get to report on nice things happening to good people. More after the jump.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Victim "sees a woman's life put in jeopardy when she witnesses a violent act by two deputies. When feeling her pursuers, she stumbles across a recluse (Biehn) living in the woods, upending his solitary life."
"Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Danielle Harris, Ryan Honey, and Denny Kirkwood make up the main cast of what is being described as a grindhouse picture.
"No release details were given but a theatrical run is being planned as is a college tour.
"Victim was executive produced by Brock Morse, Morgan Johnson and Ryan Honey and produced by Blanc-Biehn, Lorna Paul and Travis Romero. Preferred Content repped the film.
"Victim is the second Biehn film being released by Anchor Bay. The company is opening post-apocalyptic thriller The Divide on January 13."
