Joel Kinnaman, Rosamund Pike, Common and Clive Owen join Three Seconds
BLOOM announced today that Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad, RoboCop, The Killing), Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Jack Reacher), Academy Award winner Common (Selma, John Wick: Chapter 2), and Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men) will star in Andrea Di Stefano’s (Escobar: Paradise Lost) feature adaptation Three Seconds.
BLOOM’s Alex Walton said: “In Escobar: Paradise Lost, Andrea DiStefano delivered a taut, suspenseful film. Andrea has collaborated with our elite production group to heighten Three Seconds into a fresh modern New York set thriller that can appeal to audiences worldwide.”
Based on the best-selling Swedish novel by Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström, the action thriller was written by Matt Cook with revisions by Rowan Joffé and current revisions by DiStefano. Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee are producing alongside The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones, Mark Lane and James Harris and Ollie Madden. The Fyzz Facility are also financing the film. Thunder Road’s Jonathan Fuhrman and Magnolia Entertainment’s Shelley Browning are Executive Producers.
Three Seconds follows reformed-criminal and former special ops soldier Pete Hoffman who, in order to free himself from jail and return to his wife and daughter, has been working undercover for crooked FBI handlers to infiltrate the Polish mob’s drug trade in New York. In a final step towards freedom, Hoffman must return to the one place he’s fought so hard to leave, Bale Hill Prison, where his mission becomes a race against time when a drug deal goes wrong and threatens his identity as a mole. The film is currently in pre-production.
