Jamie Foxx is in final negotiations to star alongside Gerard Butler in the psychological thriller “Law Abiding Citizen” for the Film Department says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows a successful assistant D.A. (Butler) who finds himself at the center of a vigilante plot hatched by a traumatized victim of the legal system (Foxx).
Foxx’s character is devastated to learn that, because of a plea bargain, one of his wife and daughter’s murderers will be set free. So he unleashes revenge on the killers and those who made the deal.
Frank Darabont is directing and co-writing the script with Kurt Wimmer. Butler, Alan Siegel, Lucas Foster and Mark Gill are producing.
