Michael Mailer will direct and produce the indie drama from a script by Tiffany Heath.

Sin City actress Jaime King is set to star alongside Ray Liotta in the crime mystery Cutman from director Michael Mailer, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The indie drama, based on a script by Tiffany Heath, portrays two people at the end of their road who stay in a desolate East Texas motel. King will play a junkie named Josie Ray Broussard, while Liotta will portray a retired boxer dying of cancer.

King's character is left horrifically traumatized by the abuse she endured as a child. Tarnished by heroin addiction and hard living, Josie is a drifter who travels with her 10-year-old daughter, Stryk, to wherever the wind blows them. Both main characters aim to complete a mission of revenge and redemption, only to find a tough little girl links their fates and shapes the rest of their lives.

Michael Mailer Films is producing Cutman. King recently wrapped work on the upcoming franchise pics Escape Plan 2 and Escape Plan 3 as the female lead, starring opposite Sylvester Stallone.

And, after starring alongside Jason Ritter in Marianna Palka's psychological-horror comedy Bitch, which bowed at Sundance, King is also to appear in Jennifer Clary's How to Cook Your Daughter, to shoot in fall 2018.

King is repped by Gersh, WME, manager Oren Segal and Myman Greenspan.
