Jay Baruchel Tries His Hand At “Random Acts of Violence”

Jay Baruchel

Jay Baruchel, a Canadian actor who garnered attention in the How to Train Your Dragon series, This Is the End and She’s Out of My League, is trying his hand at directing with the adaption of the popular graphic novel Random Acts of Violence. 

Baruchel has done everything else connected with the silver screen, so the decision to direct seem s a logical next step. He has cast his friend Emily VanCamp  and David Krumholtz in the film. Baruchel told Wenn “We finally have our financing and we have our leads. If we can get everything together at the right time, it will be finally something I’ll get to direct. So hopefully we’ll be making this crazy, weird horror movie in Northern Ontario this year.” Baruchel will also be starring in the film.

The graphic novel is about comic book writers who discover an eerie correspondence between the world they are creating through their drawings and real life. Baruchel grew up in Ottowa, Ontario and the name Baruchel comes from his grandfather who was a Sephardic Jew.
