Joel McHale, Amanda Brugel & Robert Maillet join Kevin James in Becky

According to Deadline, Joel McHale (Community), Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes) have joined Emmy Award-nominated comedic actor Kevin James (The King of Queens, Paul Blart: Mall Cop) in the home invasion thriller Becky. 

Becky follows the story of a rebellious 14-year-old Becky as she’s brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an effort to try to reconnect after her mother’s death. The trip takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (James), suddenly invade the lake house. Becky, not daddy’s little girl anymore, decides to take matters into her own hands.

James, who is known for his many comedic roles, has signed on to take on a new kind of role which is far different from his previous projects. He is set to portray the role of Dominick, who will be the film’s main antagonist. The film will also be led by Lulu Wilson (Annabelle: Creation), who will be playing the titular character.

The film will be co-directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion (Bushwick) from a script written by Nick Morris along with Ruckus and Lane Skye. It will be produced by Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Russ Posternak through their Yale Productions banner along with Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz of BoulderLight.

McHale is best known for his work on the TV series Community along with Netflix’s The Joel McHale Show. Brugel appeared in Room opposite Brie Larson and will next be seen on TBS’ Snowpiercer series. Maillet previously appeared in Deadpool 2 and the Starz series American Gods.

James replaced Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) in the lead role after Pegg decided to leave the project due to scheduling conflicts.
