Broken City recently started shooting in New Orleans, but it seems they haven’t finished filling out the cast, as Variety reports that Super 8 and Firday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler has signed up to take a role in the movie.
A few weeks ago Barry Pepper joined the film as a mayoral candidate, and Chandler will play his campaign manager. The story centers on Mark Wahlberg’s character, a private investigator hired by the mayor (Russell Crowe) to find his wife’s lover. The detective comes to learn dark secrets about the mayor during the course of his investigation, which puts his life in danger.
Allen Hughes is directing with the thriller due out next year.
