Ray Winstone has signed on to star in writer/director Stuart St. Paul's serial killer thriller Red Snow.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Winstone will star as an ex-SAS officer tracking down his missing daughter in the snow forests of a remote town in north Canada.

St. Paul, who also penned the script, is set to shoot the $4 million budgeted in Canada in April 2010, producer Andy Thompson said.

Red Snow is based on a true story of a serial killer in Alaska whose killing spree hit the headlines in the 1980s.
