THR reports that Moon Bloodgood and British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen have joined George Tillman Jr.’s (Notorious) upcoming action-thriller Faster, starring Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton, Maggie Grace, with Salma Hayek in negotiations to co-star. Faster centers on an ex-con (Johnson) who is pursued by cops and killers as he attempts to avenge his brother’s death. Bloodgood would play the ex-con’s girlfriend while Jackson-Cohen would play “a self-made millionaire who kills for fun,” which is redundant because I think that’s what all self-made millionaires do.
According to Screen Daily, Kevin Spacey has come on board Dayyan Eng’s China-based dark comedy Inseparable. The film, which will be shot in both Mandarin and English, is about a troubled young man (Daniel Wu) who is befriended by a mysterious American expatriate (Spacey) who changes his life. Beibi Gong will co-star as the young man’s investigative reporter wife. The film is scheduled to begin filming in southern China this month.
