Kill Me Three Times is a comedic thriller that follows three overlapping murder plots in a gorgeous Australian beach town, all narrated by Simon Pegg as Charlie Wolfe, a quick-witted, heartless assassin. Scenes are shown from different characters’ points of view in non-chronological order as the lives of six locals (played by prominent Australian actors) intertwine. Sounds engaging and fun in theory, but in practice the humor is almost non-existent apart from Pegg, and the Wild Things-style “twists” rarely surprise. The intricate plot goes something like this: Wolfe is hired by a man (Callan Mulvey) to murder his wife (Alice Braga), but he doesn’t realize that two other people (Teresa Palmer and Sullivan Stapleton) already have detailed plans to kill her as part of an insurance scheme. Braga’s new boyfriend (Luke Hemsworth) goes after the husband while the local police officer (Bryan Brown) pursues one of the potential killers who has enormous gambling debts. All of these characters know each other personally, but they each have varying knowledge of how connected their lives truly are.

We first heard back in May that Simon Pegg was going to be starring in a decidedly non-comedic thriller from Australian director Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) called Kill Me Three Times, which sounded pretty interesting in and of itself, but now Deadline has some casting news regarding the project that’s made it appear even more appealing due to some added fresh faces and some light being shed on the plot. First off, the faces. According to the report, youthful Aussies Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Luke Hemsworth (that third Hemsworth brother you’ve heard rumors about), have just joined the ensemble, which, in addition to Pegg, has also picked up Alice Braga (City of God), Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), and Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty) along the way. For those keeping score, that’s a whole handful of hot young actors starring in a movie from the guy who made one of the highest grossing Australian films of all time. Seems like Kill Me Three Times has what it takes to be a winner.

What is Casting Couch? A list of the weekend’s casting news, headed up by various Guardians of the Galaxy castings, but also including news on what’s up with Judd Nelson. The cast of Marvel’s space adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy, is getting so extensive, and so many actors appearing in it have been described as having a “lead role,” that it’s starting to get pretty confusing as to how all this stuff is going to fit into one movie. We’ve got intergalactic superheroes, intergalactic police, bounty hunters, liaisons to government agencies on Earth, and who knows how many other players introduced at this point. Nonetheless, Heat Vision has a report that the film has now cast its “lead female villain,” and the lady they’ve got to play the role is Doctor Who’s beloved companion, Karen Gillan. As if this balls crazy movie didn’t have enough geek cred already.
