The Noah actor is set to play – assuming they're sticking with original film's character names – Pappas, famously played by Gary Busey in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 offering. He'll be part of the team chasing down a gang of extreme sports enthusiasts who are pulling off big crimes and led by Bodhi (Gerard Butler). With Bracey's Utah ordered to infiltrate the gang and take them down from within, things get more complicated from there.
Core is gearing up to shoot this summer, working from a script by Kurt Wimmer (Salt). The film should be out next year.
Winstone, on screens now causing trouble for Russell Crowe in Darren Aronofsky's latest, will be seen in The Gunman alongside Sean Penn and in political infidelity drama Zipper.
