The Shield co-stars Michael Chiklis and Forest Whitaker are set to reunite for the crime thriller Pawn. The indie centers on a hostage situation gone wrong, as an ex-con “becomes entangled in a manipulative chess game between the Feds, local police and the mob.” In addition to Chiklis and Whitaker, Deadline reports that Ray Liotta and Common are also set to star with David A. Armstrong making his feature directorial debut. Chiklis will be producing the pic alongside Brad Luff, Jeff Most, and Michael Becker. The script was written by Jay Anthony White and production is set to begin on December 1st.
Chiklis recently wrapped his role as the villain in the revenge thriller Parker opposite Jason Statham, while Whitaker just starred in The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Common can currently be seen on AMC’s western drama series Hell on Wheels.
The co-stars talk about their new road trip comedy, how to break into the film business as a woman, the challenges of physical comedy and more.
