Actors Michael Chiklis and Forest Whitaker worked together on quite a few episodes of The Shield. Now it seems they’re reuniting as Deadline reports they’ve both signed on for the indie thriller Pawn. Ray Liotta and Common have also signed on, although it isn’t known what roles these actors will play.
The story centres on an ex-con who gets caught up in a hostage situation gone terribly awry, where he has to fend off the local police, FBI agents, and the mob. David A. Armstrong will make his directorial debut with Pawn, working from a screenplay by Jay Anthony White.
Michael Chiklis will also make his feature producing debut, working alongside Brad Luff, Jeff Most, and Michael Becker. Production is slated to begin December 1.
