EXCLUSIVE: Piper Perabo has been cast opposite Bruce Willis and Ben Kingsley in Wake, an indie thriller from director John Pogue. When the Forrester family reunites for a relative’s wake, they are unnerved by the arrival of the dead man’s brother, Red (Willis), a diagnosed sociopath who made their lives a living hell until he disappeared years ago. But when the family comes under siege from some deadly associates of the deceased, they’re glad to have Red on their side. Perabo will play Claire Forrester, the dead man’s widow who also is also a former lover of Red’s. Cameron Monaghan and Ellen Burstyn also star.
