Cases of mistaken identity never tend to lead anywhere good, since assuming someone else’s persona means that there’s someone being deceived who eventually is not going to be happy about it. The thriller Laroy, Texas presents such a situation with a suicidal man accidentally hired as a hitman and thrown into a mess that’s way over his head. Laced with dark comedy, this story puts a fresh spin on the crime genre.

I had the chance to speak with star John Magaro and director Shane Atkinson about working together, crafting the tone of this film, and achieving a memorable product that brings viewers in and keeps them engaged until the very end.
