First reported earlier this month by The Daily Mail, Deadline has now confirmed that Daniel Craig will headline an upcoming courtroom drama titled The Whole Truth. Frozen River helmer Courtney Hunt is directing from a screenplay by Nicholas Kazan (Matilda, The Bicentennial Man).
Details on the plot of The Whole Truth are still few, but Craig is said to be playing a lawyer with production targeting Boston, Massachusetts.
Craig hasn’t appeared on the big screen since his last outting as James Bond in 2012′s Skyfall. He is, however, set to reprise the 007 role for the franchise’s still-untitled 24th film, which will again be directed by Sam Mendes.
Richard Suckle is attached to produce with FilmNation already set to handle foreign rights.
