Dominic Cooper is in talks to star in the revenge thriller “Motor City” at Warner Bros. Pictures and Silver Pictures says Variety.
The story follows a small time crook who is framed and sent to jail, only to go after those who put him there after he is released. What’s different about Chad St. John’s 2009 Black List making script is that there is apparently only a single line of dialogue.
Chris Evans was previously offered the lead role but has obviously turned it down, Joel Edgerton and Jeremy Renner were also previously said to be in consideration.
Albert Hughes (“The Book of Eli”) directs while Joel Silver and Andrew Rona are producing. Silver saw Cooper’s work in “The Devil’s Double” which is what lead to the offer going out to him.
