The new AMC series The Killing is host to fine some acting — too fine to be confined to television. Tonight, it was reported Mireille Enos is in talks to join Brad Pitt in World War Z; now Heat Vision adds that her Killing co-star Joel Kinnaman will star opposite Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Tim McGraw, Brendan Gleeson, Ruben Blades and the recently announced Vera Farmiga in Safe House. The story follows “the only surviving agent of an attack on a CIA safe house (Reynolds) as he tries to transport a lethal prisoner (Washington) to a second destination before being taken out by violent forces that want them both dead.” Kinnaman will play a man who operates the safe house in what Heat Vision calls “a key role.”
The Swedish actor first gained international attention last year in Snabba Cash. Safe House just so happens to be the Hollywood debut of director Daniel Espinosa. Kinnaman will first be seen in The Darkest Hour, an alien invasion thriller due December 23. Safe House follows on February 10, 2012. Filming is currently underway in South Africa.
