Sounds like a Star Wars version of poker!

I don't know if this movie is about poker at all.

"Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson have signed on to star in Poker Night.

Written by Greg Francis, the story centres on a detective (Christensen) who awakes to find himself bound to a chair in a basement. Accompanying him is his host, a serial killer intent on exacting physical and psychological torture upon him, Variety explains.

Directed by Nick Gillard, the film is expected to begin production in 2006."


The plot sounds more of a redux of the movie "Saw".

The "poker" title may have more to do with the back and forth psychological aspect of the movie between the cop and serial killer.
