Two-time Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds) is set to join fellow two-time Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro (Silver Linings Playbook, Raging Bull), Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Omar Sy (The Intouchables, the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past) in Good Universe’s and Lionsgate’s The Candy Store, a character-driven action thriller by Academy Award-winning writer and director Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana).

The Candy Store interweaves several storylines set against a dynamic criminal underworld in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. A former covert operative (Clarke) discovers the organization he was dedicated to fighting is now operating in his new backyard. When he teams up with a disgraced local cop (De Niro), their investigation leads them to an international sex trade entrepreneur (Sy), a Cold War consigliere posing as a typical American suburbanite (Waltz), and a beautiful girl wrapped up in an elaborate threat against Manhattan.

Gaghan will direct and produce from a script he co-wrote with Shannon Burke. Allison Shearmur (the upcoming Cinderella) will produce alongside Gaghan. Good Universe’s Joe Drake, Nathan Kahane and Nicole Brown will executive produce alongside Flashlight Films’ Allyn Stewart and Kipp Nelson. Good Universe’s Matt Leonetti will co-produce along with Suzanne Joskow.

Lionsgate will distribute in North America. Good Universe is handling international sales and presenting the film as part of their slate in Cannes.
