Kyle Chandler Takes Role in Allen Hughes

Political thriller adds Kyle Chandler.

Kyle Chandler (‘Argo,’ ‘Super 8’) is the latest actor to come aboard Allen Huges’ upcoming political thriller ‘Broken City.’

The Brian Tucker-scripted thriller stars Mark Wahlberg as a Brooklyn detective hired by a powerful politician (Russell Crowe) to identify his wife’s lover. Things take a turn for the worse when the lover is subsequently found and killed.

According to Variety, Chandler will be playing the “nuts and bolts component” of a mayoral candidate, played by Barry Pepper.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is set to play the politician’s wife, with Barry Pepper (‘True Grit’), Alona Tal (‘Supernatural’), Jeffery Wright (‘Ides of March’), Justin Chambers (‘Grey’s Anatomy’), James Ransone (‘Treme’) and Griffin Dunne (‘After Hours’) co-starring.
