LaPaglia, Hemsworth Join “The Reckoning”

Jonathan LaPaglia (“Seven Days,” “The Slap”) and Luke Hemsworth (“All Saints,” “Satisfaction”) are set to star in “Needle” writer/director John V. Soto’s crime thriller “The Reckoning” at Lightning Entertainment.

The story revolves around a detective (LaPaglia) who discovers footage at a murder scene, shot by two teenagers, that provides clues to the identity of a killer.

The teens have since gone missing, and as the detective retraces their journey, he soon uncovers a trail of deceit and murder that leads all the way back to him.

Hemsworth, brother of Chris and Liam, will be playing a fellow detective.

Shooting kicks off on April 29th on location in Australia with Deidre Kitcher producing.
