Luke Evans Joins Prison Tale “Three Seconds”

“The Hobbit” actor Luke Evans is set to join “Black Mirror” and “Peaky Blinders” director Otto Bathurst’s maximum-security prison thriller feature “Three Seconds” at Bloom, Thunder Road, Shine Pictures and PalmStar Media.

An adaptation of a best-selling novel by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, Evans plays a man who is dispatched by the FBI to infiltrate the Polish mafia’s New York drug trade.

Forced undercover in maximum security prison when his cover’s sprung and he’s abandoned by the FBI, his only chance of survival is to break out of the prison or die.

Matt Cook adapted the script, Basil Iwanyk and Ollie Madden will produce. Filming begins this Spring in New York.
