Gary Oldman is in final negotiations to play the villain in Albert Hughes’ revenge thriller “Motor City” for Dark Castle and Warner Bros. Pictures says Heat Vision.
Dominic Cooper (“The Devil’s Double”) and Amber Heard (“Drive Angry 3D”) star in the film about a small time hood who is framed and sent to prison, only to exact revenge years later to get back the woman he loves.
Oldman plays a kingpin who has his hooks into the woman. Oldman previously worked with Hughes on “The Book of Eli”.
Chad St. John wrote the script while Joel Silver and Andrew Rona are producing. Shooting kicks off in April in Berlin.
