Shannyn Sossamon, Vinnie Jones and Stephen Rea have joined Parkland Pictures’ British crime thriller “The Heavy” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows a henchman (Gary Stretch) forced to forgive a debt to his shady businessman boss (Rea) by assassinating his own brother, a high profile politician.
The plan begins to unravel when he gets involved with a student (Sossamon) whose flat he plans to use for the crime, and a corrupt detective (Jones) gets on his trail.
Christopher Lee, George Harris, Geoff Bell and Jean Marsh also star. Screenwriter-director Marcus Warren begins shooting this month in the UK.
