Recently Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman signed up to star in the thriller Criminal, and now another big name has joined the cast, as Ryan Reynolds has signed up for the movie, according to Variety.
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.
It’s not currently 100% clear which actor will play which role, except that Oldman will be the head of the CIA. Presumably Reynolds and Costner will be the killer and the dead CIA agent, but it’s unclear which way round it will be.
Ariel Vromen is set to direct from a script by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg.
