Mike Fleming

EXCLUSIVE: Mireille Enos and Scott Speedman have been set to star alongside Ryan Reynolds in Queen Of The Night, a psychological thriller that Atom Egoyan will direct early next year in Ontario.

Enos was drafted for the role by Egoyan after she played a small role in Devil’s Knot, the film he just completed about the bogus triple murder conviction of the West Memphis 3 in Arkansas, despite the lack of any physical evidence.

Speedman is also reuniting with Egoyan. In Queen Of The Night, he will play the cop searching the his missing daughter. Speedman previously worked with Egoyan on the film Adoration. He is coming off the ABC series Last Resort and stars opposite Evan Rachel Wood in the upcoming feature Barefoot. Read More »
