Los Angeles, Apr 12 (PTI) Jaime King has been roped in as the female lead in indie drama “Cutman”, which also stars Ray Liotta.

The 38-year-old actor will play a druggie Josie Ray Broussard, who continues to be terrorised by the trauma of abuse she endured in her childhood, Deadline reported.

Micheal Mailer will both direct and produce the film.

Tiffany Heath has written the script, which follows the story of a retired boxer (Liotta) dying of cancer and works as an enforcer for low-level mobsters.

He is haunted by the death of his “cutman” – the person responsible for preventing and treating physical damage to a fighter during the breaks between rounds of a full contact match.

The boxer wishes to die peacefully before he meets Broussard and her daughter, Stryk as they all search for meaning and revenge.
