Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir and Emilia Clarke will co-star.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ star Jude Law has signed up to take the lead in the writer/director Richard Shepard’s ‘Dom Hemingway,’ a black comedy about revenge and regrets.

Due to kick off principal photography next week in the South of France, THR says that Law will be playing “a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison. Travelling with his devoted best friend he visits his crime boss in the south of France to claim his reward.”

The supporting cast will include Richard E. Grant (‘The Iron Lady’), Mexican actor Demian Bichir (‘Savages’), ‘Game of Thrones’ beauty Emilia Clarke, Jumayn Hunter (‘Eden Lake’) and Romanian model/actress Madalina Ghenea.

“With these great players in addition to Jude Law and Richard E. Grant, the cast promises acting fireworks,” Thomas said in a release.
