Mickey Rourke has a confirmed part in the film, which is penned by debut writer Chad St John.
Brody – best known for his roles in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist and Peter Jackson’s King Kong – was last seen in a cameo role performing Salvador Dali in Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris as part of an emsemble cast, as well as starring in Tony Kaye’s return to filmmaking as a depressed teacher in and American education drama Detachment.
Brody recently completed work on Xiaogang Feng’s 1942, a Chinese-based drama about a deadly drought in 1942 that takes its toll on central China’s Henan province during the war against Japan.
