Tim Roth is currently looking for a new TV series since Lie to Me was canceled earlier this year. In the meantime, he’s signing on to star in the drama Broken and the dark comedy The Liability. Directed by Rufus Norris, Broken co-stars Cillian Murphy and newcomer Eloise Laurence, and has Roth playing “the father of an 11-year old girl living in North London who witnesses a violent attack which changes the way she looks at the world around her.” At which point, Roth becomes The Abomination. Okay, that doesn’t really happen, but I think that should happen in all of his movies from now on. Filming on Broken begins this month in England.
As for The Liability, Deadline reports the story centers on an “aspiring hitman and a veteran assassin who hates protégés and dreams of retiring. They come across a beautiful and deadly female vigilante, who forces them to pool their resources to survive.” How to survive: become The Abomination. Directed by Craig Viveiros (Ghosted), the film co-stars Talulah Riley and the great Peter Mullan. The Liability will also shoot in the UK.
