Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit trilogy, the Pirates of the Caribbean series) stars as a cop who moonlights as a killer-for-hire in the multi-award-winning Tracy Letts' blackly comic thriller, Killer Joe.
The Smith family hatch a plan to murder their estranged matriarch for her insurance money. They hire Joe Cooper, a police detective and part-time contract killer, to do the job. But once he enters their trailer home and comes face to face with their innocent daughter, the plan spirals out of control...
A tense, gut-twisting thriller, Killer Joe, directed by Simon Evans (The Dazzle and Bug at Found111, The Best Man) asks where the moral line is drawn in the fight for survival.
