John Cusack thriller The Factory gets promo poster and new synopsis

Wow, I had forgotten all about Dark Castle's THE FACTORY... perhaps it's because it's been shuffling around like a hobo since 2007. (Our first article about it was in November of that year.) One of those troubled flicks that has had a multitude of release dates in its past, it last found itself in a January 28, 2011 slot, only to eventually lose it... Clearly, all is not well.
But... that doesn't mean people are working on it still. IM Global, the sales company the represents the film, has whipped up a promo poster (sorry for the quality, but it's all that's available) and given the flick a new synopsis. Most likely, THE FACTORY will have a presence at the upcoming American Film Market, so expect to see some more from it in the coming weeks. (Just don't expect a release date.)
Detective Mike Fletcher, a rugged and obsessive cop, and his partner Kelsey Walker, are on the trail of a serial killer who prowls the streets targeting young streetwalkers. When Fletcher's teenage daughter disappears, he discovers that the killer has kidnapped her after mistaking her for a hooker. His obsession goes into overdrive when he drops all professional restraint to get the killer and save his daughter.
In addition to Cusack, THE FACTORY stars Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger, Jennifer Carpenter, Michael Trevino, Cindy Sampson, Gary Anthony Williams, Dallas Roberts, Katherine Waterston and Mageina Tovah. It'll open fifty years from now. http://www.joblo.com/arrow/index.php?id=24369
