On the heels of word yesterday that Idris Elba had joined the cast, Deadline is reporting that Ray Winstone has also signed on to director Pierre Morel's The Gunman. The current cast also includes Javier Bardem and Sean Penn.

The film is an adaptation of Jean-Patrick Manchette's novel The Prone Gunman, which was published post-mortem in 2002 and translated by James Brooks and published through Lawrence Ferlinghetti's City Light Books in 2002 with the following official description:

Martin Terrier is a hired killer who wants out of the game so he can settle down and marry his childhood sweetheart. That's why he took up this profession! Martin returns to his hometown to claim her, but the Organization won't let him go. Once again, the gunman must assume the prone shooting position.

Winstone is well known for films like Beowulf, The Departed and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. He recently appeared in Snow White and the Huntsman and can be seen coming up in Darren Aronofsky's Noah.

Joel Silver and Andrew Rona will produce The Gunman with Peter Travis providing the screenplay.
