Jason Patric To Play “Losers” Villain

Jason Patric is tipped to play the villain in the upcoming comic adaptation “The Losers” reports AICN.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba and Columbus Short star in the story of an elite group of special forces operatives who are betrayed by their handlers and left for dead.

Surviving the setup, they embark on a series of wildcat ops designed to clear their own names and bring down the government agency that sold them out.

Patric will play Max, the man responsible behind the assassination of Aisha’s (Saldana) father, and is also responsible for the “accident” of the Losers when they went off mission.

Sylvain White helms the project which is due for release in 2011.
