Director Joe Johnston has chosen to follow up his big-budget superhero flick, last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger, with a new “micro-budgeted thriller” that will, unfortunately, be pretty hard to search for online. The film is called Not Safe For Work (or just NSFW) and “it follows a young paralegal trapped in an office with a killer mission to destroy files and anyone that stands in his path.” Sounds like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays! (Forgive me.)

The film is starting to come together, with Max Minghella (The Social Network, The Darkest Hour) in talks to play that put-upon paralegal, with Elise Mumford (part of the ensemble on the new TV show The River, and soon to be seen in that Miley Cyrus sorority flick So Undercover) also in talks to Minghella’s girlfriend, who just so happens to works in his office. While we haven’t seen enough from Mumford to properly judge the weight of her casting, I’ve always found Minghella appealing and interesting to watch, so he could make for a compelling young lead in this thriller.

With a script by horror-thriller writers Adam Mason and Simon Boyes, best known for indie films like Luster, Blood River, and The Devil’s Chair, the film looks to be coming from a solid scare pedigree, so consider me intrigued. [Variety, via Cinema Blend]
