Biel, Schiff, Tennie Join Reiner’s “Shock and Awe”

Jessica Biel and newcomer Luke Tennie have joined whilst “The West Wing” alum Richard Schiff is closing his deal to join Rob Reiner’s upcoming “Shock and Awe” at Acacia Filmed Entertainment and Voltage Films.

Joey Hartstone (“LBJ”) penned the story which centers on a group of journalists who asked the tough questions about Saddam Hussein’s alleged WMDs after the Bush administration sold the Iraq War to the American public and via speeches in the United Nations.

Biel plays the significant other of James Marsden’s character, who meets him and falls in love. Schiff plays a deep-background source from the intelligence community, Tennie plays a paralyzed combat veteran who testifies during the Senate hearing on the circumstances surrounding the Iraq War.

Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones, Alec Baldwin and Milla Jovovich also star. Reiner, Matthew George and Michele Reiner are producing and filming kicks off next month.
