With principal photography having just begun on November 3, BLOOM has announced that Academy Award-nominees John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire) and Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense) have boarded the thriller Unlocked, joining Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas and Orlando Bloom in the film directed by Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Enigma).
Based on a screenplay by Peter O’Brien, Unlocked tells the story of a CIA interrogator (Rapace) who unwittingly provides information to terrorists and then must race against the clock to stop a biological warfare attack on London.
BLOOM’s Alex Walton said: “We are thrilled to have John and Toni’s unmatchable talent join our already outstanding cast. This additional caliber combined with our fresh and smart European script models a unique and dynamic package that is bound to excite audiences worldwide.”
Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Salt) is producing alongside Georgina Townsley and Erik Howsam. Silver Reel (Under the Skin, The Railway Man, The Host) will finance and produce alongside di Bonaventura.
