Ray Liotta Will Terrorize Chloe Moretz In Karyn Kusama’s ‘The Rut’

I’ve missed Ray Liotta. I don’t know if it was a series of poor choices, the powers that be in Hollywood just not caring for his presence, or even a desire to do smaller movies — but we haven’t seen the guy do a great film since, I don’t know, Goodfellas? (Copland‘s much better than everyone remembers, actually.) Andrew Dominik‘s Killing Them Softly and The Iceman are at least in the waits, and, now, Karyn Kusama might provide some further relief to whatever ailment may already exist.

THR informs us that Liotta will be taking a big role in her new film, The Rut, a job that also sees him working alongside Chloe Moretz and Jeffrey Dean Morgan — in a villainous capacity, too. The film, written by Kevin Caruso, revolves around “a teenage girl who aims to win her father’s approval by surrounding herself with danger and adventure as she journeys into the wilderness alone to hunt deer.” Not the kind of tale you’d expect to have someone particularly nefarious in — unless you’ve got some strange line of thinking going on there — but, nevertheless, we’ll get to see him play “a nemesis hunter to Moretz, a man who is obsessed with bow hunting and considers Morgan his rival.”

So, maybe more of a Disney villain than Frank Booth, but The Rut sounds like a decently-sized role in a decent film for one of our most undervalued and underused actors; no, I won’t complain. And, no matter what, it isn’t Street Kings 2.

Do you see any potential in Liotta taking a part in The Rut?
