Alex Pettyfer gets Tormented

Acting alongside Mickey Rourke in the first Alex Ryder film might have been horrifying enough, but Alex Pettyfer will soon be scaring others.

He’s just won the lead for Tormented, Jon Wright’s British horror about a bullied kid who returns from the dead to wreak horrible revenge on those who made his life hell. April Pearson, Larissa Wilson and Mary Nighy (Bill’s daughter) are also starring and Variety is looking for payback .
