You either die a mall cop or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. And with Kevin James clinging to life as stubbornly as the King of Queens’ ongoing Twitter, the actor has finally found his first antagonist role.
According to Deadline, James is set to replace Simon Pegg as the lead villain in the upcoming thriller Becky. He’ll star opposite Annabelle: Creation and The Haunting of Hill House‘s Lulu Wilson as leader of a group of escaped convicts who take over a lake home inhabited by a single father and his daughter. Wilson plays the rebellious teenager who takes on the invaders. There goes your “Die Hard in a vacation house with a 14-year-old girl and Paul Blart” script.
