EXCLUSIVE: Two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom), Oscar nominee Robert Forster (Jackie Brown) along with Emmy nominees Gary Cole (Veep) and Molly Parker (House of Cards) have joined Game of Thrones’ actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in director E.L. Katz’s crime thriller, Small Crimes. The Rumble Films productions is being financed by U.K.’s Rooks Nest (The Witch, Obvious Child) and French-based Backup and Paradise City.
The film, which started production last week in Montreal, was co written by Katz and Macon Blair and is being produced by Rumble Films’ David Lancaster.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays the lead role in what is Katz’s second film (after Cheap Thrills). Small Crimes is a suspense black comic tale that follows a disgraced former cop, fresh off a six-year prison
sentence for attempted murder, who returns home looking for redemption, but then ends up trapped in the mess he left behind. The film is based on Dave Zeltserman’s 2008 novel.
Coster-Waldau also stars in Bold Films’ prison thriller Shotcaller, which will be released later this year.
ICM and Elevate Entertainment represent Weaver. Forster is repped by Don Buchwald and Associates and Anonymous Content. The Gersh Agency and Envoy Entertainment represent Cole, and Molly Parker is repped by CAA and Circle of Confusion. The film will be sold by Memento Films International.
