EXCLUSIVE: Lights Out star Holt McCallany has booked a lead role opposite Chris Hemsworth and Viola Davis in the untitled Legendary Pictures movie being directed by Michael Mann that centers on cyber terrorism. The thriller is expected to begin shooting this month in China. The plot is being kept quiet, but McCallany will play a street-smart U.S. Marshal charged with the custody of Hemsworth’s character. McCallany played heavyweight champ Patrick “Lights Out” Leary on the FX series that lasted one season. That jump-started a string of feature roles including in Gangster Squad and Bullet To The Head. He is repped by APA and Mosaic.
