It seems there’s not going to be too much fallout from Gary Oldman defending the homophobic and racist rants of fellow celebs, as thanks to him quickly calling himself an ‘asshole’ for doing so, all seems to be forgiven. It’s certainly not stopped him booking new roles.
A few weeks ago Kevin Costner signed up for the thriller Criminal, and now he’s got some company as Gary Oldman has signed up to co-star, according to THR.
The movie is about a ruthless killer who chooses to take part in a scientific experiment instead of spending the rest of his life in jail. He gets implanted with the brain of a recently-murdered CIA field operative in the hope that he will stop a diabolical plot.
Oldman will play the head of the CIA.
Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) will direct from a script by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg
