Trio board action comedy…
It has been announced that Aubrey Plaza (‘Parks And Recreation,’ ‘The To Do List,’ ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’), Oliver Platt (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Love & Other Drugs,’ ‘2012’) and Jeff Goldblum (‘Independence Day,’ ‘Jurassic Park’) have joined the cast of the action comedy ‘Mortdecai.’
The film, based on the popular three-novel anthology by Kyril Bonfiglioli, stars Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn and Paul Bettany.
“Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumoured to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.”
Additionally cast members include Guy Burnet, Michael Byrne, Michael Culkin, Jonny Pasvolsky, Ulrich Thomsen, and Paul Whitehouse.
David Koepp is behind the camera, with a screenplay coming from Eric Aronson.
Andrew Lazar, Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski and OddLot’s Gigi Pritzker are producing the project.
