Tim Roth is the latest actor to join the cast of writer/director Nicholas Jarecki’s indie drama Arbitrage. The film stars Richard Gere stars as “a troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire makes an error that forces him to turn to an unlikely person for help.” Variety reports that Roth will play a detective who’s investigating a murder.
The film now boasts an impressive cast that includes Gere, Susan Sarandon, Eva Green, Aubrey Graham (also known as rapper Drake), and Sundance darling Brit Marling. Jarecki, who helmed the documentary The Outsider, is the brother of filmmakers Andrew and Eugene (Capturing the Friedmans). The cast that he’s assembled is intriguing, especially Marling, who was a breakout hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival having co-written and starred in two films that were featured: Another Earth and Sound of My Voice. Arbitrage is set to start filming this month in New York City.
