Along with two others...
Variety reports that Morgan Freeman, Vincent Cassel, Olga Kurylenko and Shea Whigham are set to star in Stephen Campanelli's thriller Momentum. Colette Aguilar, the sales president for Moonrise Pictures and sales agent for the film, made the announcement at the Toronto International Film Festival. Grosvenor Park is co-financing.
Campanelli is best known as Clint Eastwood's camera operator since The Bridges of Madison County. Anton Ernst, the producer of South Africa's 2012 film Little One (which was submitted to the Academy Awards) will produce through Thaba Media and Azari Media. The film was written by Adam Marcus (Let It Snow) and writing partner Debra Sullivan. Kurylenko plays a thief on the run from the law and Cassel's assassin gang. The film will go into production on January 13 in Cape Town, South Africa. Glen MacPherson, the director of photography for Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii and Resident Evil: Retribution, will the cinematographer. The film is looking for a fall 2014 release.
Campanelli said on the set of Eastwood's Jersey Boys: "For the last 20 years, I've been blessed to work with one of cinema's greatest story tellers, Clint Eastwood, as my mentor. Now, I will be making the leap to where I really belong, as a director, with the feature film ‘Momentum'."
Ernst added: "We are excited to produce an intelligent, action-packed movie that will have everyone on the edge of their seats throughout,"
Ernst also said that the film will launch Kurylenko as "the ultimate femme fatale action hero."
