Langella Continues Genre Work in UNKNOWN WHITE MALE
I have always been a fan of Frank Langella. He was in one of my guilty pleasures as a horror fan, BRAINSCAN. Go ahead, judge me.
Frank Langella has been set to star with Liam Neeson, January Jones and Diane Kruger in UNKNOWN WHITE MALE, the Dark Castle thriller.
Neeson plays a man who awakens from a coma to find somebody else has assumed his identity. Langella plays Cole, who comes forward as the coma guy’s colleague and gets involved as he tries to reclaim his identity.
Shooting starts January in Berlin, with Warner Bros. distributing. Joel Silver produces with Leonard Goldberg and Andrew Rona. Steve Richards, Sarah Meyer and Peter McAleese are exec producers.
One thing that the article doesn’t mention is that Jaume Collet-Serra (ORPHAN & HOUSE OF WAX) will be directing his third film for Dark Castle Films.
Dark Castle produced films have been a mixed bag for me. It is no secret that they tend to lean towards trying to get prestigious actors and actresses to star in their films shortly after getting some Oscar recognition. However, I believe it has only worked for Geoffrey Rush (HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL’) and ….well that is it. It definitely didn’t work for Hillary Swank (THE REAPING) or Halle Berry (GOTHIKA). Let us cross our fingers and hope better things for this one.
