Jai Courtney & Tom Wilkinson Set for FELONY

Two more sign up for thriller.

British actor Tom Wilkinson (‘The Lone Ranger,’ ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’) and Jai Courtney (‘Reacher,’ ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’) have landed roles opposite previously cast lead Joel Edgerton (‘Warrior’) in the thriller ‘Felony.’

“Driving home after a celebration drink with his team after the long waited bust of a major gang, a decorated police officer (Edgerton) runs a young cyclist off the road. As he gives CPR to the child, fellow officers arrive to take his statement. In a split second decision he tells them a lie about the accident which will change all their lives in this edge of your seat thriller.”

Wilkinson will take the role of Detective Carl Summer, the lead police investigator who arrives on the scene following the accident, while Deadline reports that Courtney will be playing a “fresh-faced police detective who suspects Edgerton’s character is lying and gradually builds a criminal case against him.”

Matthew Saville (‘Noise’) is directing with the screenplay coming from Edgerton. ‘Felony’ will be produced by The Solution Entertainment Group’s founders and partners, Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel, and producers Rosemary Blight of Goalpost Pictures Australia and Edgerton via Blue-Tongue Films.
