A couple of days ago it was revealed that Michael Chiklis and Forest Whitaker were set to star in an indie thriller called Pawn. Now the cast has got a whole lot bigger, with a few interesting names added to the mix. THR reports that Nikki Reed, Sean Faris, Stephen Lang, Marton Csokas, Jessica Szohr and Jonathan Bennett have all joined the movie.
Hopefully Lang has been given a role that isn’t the same grumpy character he’s played in everything from Avatar and Conan to TV’s Terra Nova, but we wouldn’t bet on it.
David A. Armstrong will direct a screenplay from Jay Anthony White, which 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.
Michael Chiklis will also make his feature producing debut with the film. Shooting starts soon.
