Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained”) will join Stephen Gaghan’s action thriller “Candy Store” at Good Universe and Lionsgate.
The story is set in the criminal underworld of Brooklyn and follows a former operative (Jason Clarke) who discovers the global organization he fought is now in his backyard.
He teams up with a disgraced local cop (Robert De Niro) to investigate, running afoul of an international sex trade entrepreneur (Omar Sy), a Cold War consigliere posing as an American suburbanite (Waltz), and a beautiful girl, uncovering a plan to detonate a nuclear bomb in Manhattan.
Gaghan will direct and produce from a script he co-wrote with Shannon Burke. Allison Shearmur also produce.
