Thriller also brings in new director.

Screen Daily hears that Simon Pegg has closed a deal to join the cast of the Aussie thriller ‘Kill Me Three Times’ with production set to commence this September.

The film is set in the sun-drenched surfing town of Eagle’s Nest, where a young woman is the thread that binds three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge.

‘Red Dog’ and ‘Boxing Day’ helmer Kriv Stenders is attached to direct, replacing original helmer Greg Mclean (‘Wolf Creek’).
