Set to play a cop chasing a vengeful heart
According to MTV’s Movies Blog, Cox’s character is “the old cop, like the Morgan Freeman part in Se7en who comes in and tries to solve the case.” That “case” concerns the recipient of donated heart, played by Josh Lucas, who is out for revenge. Says Cox: “The guy gets a heart that is the heart of somebody who was murdered. And the heart knows who the murderer is.”
Michael Cuesta is directing the adaptation for producers Ridley and Tony Scott. Cox can next been seen in the Jack Ketchum more-drama-than-thriller flick Red.
