Ryder & Rourke Turns Informers

Winona Ryder and Mickey Rourke have joined the ensemble cast of Gregor Jordan’s “The Informers,” an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ novel says The Hollywood Reporter.

The drama, which tells seven separate stories set in 1980’s Los Angeles, follows a week in the lives of a group of morally challenged characters — a movie executive, his wife, his mistress, a rock star, a vampire and a kidnapper.

Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Brandon Routh, Ashley Olsen, Jon Foster, Lou Taylor Pucci and Austin Nichols have already been cast.

Ryder will play a newscaster who has just been dumped after a longtime affair with a married producer William Sloan.

Rourke will play Peter, an amoral former studio security guard who plots to kidnap a small child to sell to the leader of a Los Angeles cult.

Principal photography will begin in October in Los Angeles.
