Scott Adkins, who was recently seen in Doctor Strange, has joined the cast of Accident Man, an action title based on a character from the graphic novel by Pat Mills and Tony Skinner from the defunct monthly UK comic Toxic!.
He joins Ray Stevenson, Ashley Greene, David Paymer, Amy Johnston, Ray Park and Michael Jai White in the film, which is directed by Jesse Johnson and set to go into production this month in the UK.
Stu Small pens the script with Adkins which follows the story of hitman Mike Fallon, who is known for making assassinations look like unfortunate accidents. His cavalier attitude changes the day his ex-girlfriend, Beth, is murdered by his own crew.
Filming will take place in London and is being produced by Craig Baumgarten, Erik Kritzer of Link Entertainment, Adkins and Ben Jacques.
Adkins and White are repped by Link and Gersh, Green is repped by CAA and McKeon-Myones. Adkins also is repped by UK’s BWH Agency and attorney Patrick Knapp at Bloom Hergott Diemer.
Stevenson is repped by ICM and Independent Talent Group, Paymer is repped by Link and APA, Johnston is repped by Link, and Park is repped by Priluck Company.
