Alice Braga (“I Am Legend”) has been cast as the female lead inUniversal’s futuristic thriller “Repossession Mambo” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on Garcia’s novel, the story follows Remy (Jude Law), a repo man made up of artificial organs, who receives a heart transplant. When he struggles to make the payments, he must go on the run from his former partner (Forest Whitaker).
Braga will play Beth, who married but lost touch with Remy while he was serving in the Army. Ten years later, Beth — down on her luck and retrofitted with artificial organs — is reunited with Remy as they seek to run.
Miguel Sapochnik is directing from a script by Eric Garcia and Garrett Lerner, whilst shooting is slated to begin October 15th in Toronto.
