Aussie actor Jai Courtney’s career should get a big boost in the next few months when he plays a villain opposite Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher and John McLane’s estranged son in A Good Day To Die Hard. Now he’s got a new job, as Deadline reports he’ll be starring in felony, opposite Joel Edgerton.
Driving home after a celebration drink with his team after the long waited bust of a major gang, a decorated police officer (Edgerton) runs a young cyclist off the road. As he gives CPR to the child, fellow officers arrive to take his statement. In a split second decision he tells them a lie about the accident which will change all their lives in this edge of your seat thriller.
Tom Wilkinson is already on board to play Detective Carl Summer, the lead police investigator who arrives on the scene following the accident. Now he’ll be joined by Courtney, who’ll play another cop who suspects that Edgerton has been lying.
Matthew Seville is getting set to direct the film this month in Sydney, based on Edgerton’s script.
