Deadline adds that Nick Nolte and James Cromwell will have supporting roles in the film which has begun shooting in Los Angeles.

    as much as I love kate she really needs to do something to recover from her pointless casting in contraband which made us wonder is there anything she can do to save herself from fading away into the background characters like many actresses before her. oh wait shes already done that... by marrying a director

    Kate Beckinsale is really not good at picking roles. Does she turn down all roles that are in any way original.
