Nobody: Christopher Lloyd & Connie Nielsen join action-thriller
Collider is reporting that Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd (Taxi, Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and Connie Nielsen (Gladiator, Wonder Woman, I Am the Night) have joined Golden Globe nominee Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) in Univeral Pictures’ Nobody, an upcoming action-thriller releasing in theaters on August 14, 2020.
Lloyd, whose upcoming projects include Time, the Fourth Dimension, Senior Moment, and Never Too Late, will play Odenkirk’s father in the feature. Nielsen, whose upcoming projects include Tonight at Noon, Wonder Woman 1984, and Inheritance, will play Odenkirk’s mother.
The film, which hails from Hardcore Henry director Ilya Naishuller, follows a quiet suburban dad named Hutch – a typical nobody – who’s long-simmering rage suddenly erupts when two thieves break into his home. Propelled by this anger, Hutch journeys down a brutal and bloody path that will ultimately force him to confront secrets he fought to leave behind.
John Wick scribe Derek Kolstad wrote the screenplay.
David Leitch and Kelly McCormick produced the pic via 87North, while Odenkirk and Marc Provissiero will produce through their Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment. Braden Aftergood will also serve as producer for Eighty Two Films. Jay Polidoro will oversee the project on behalf of Universal.
Odenkirk is best known for his role as Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad and its spinoff series Better Call Saul. He also had a role in Steven Spielberg’s The Post, the Charlize Theron-Seth Rogen comedy Long Shot, and is set to appear in Sony’s remake of Little Women this Christmas.
