Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) already has Denzel Washington (The Equalizer) aboard his next gritty thriller, Inner City. Now news arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that he is aiming to add Colin Farrell (Total Recall) to the cast.
With news of Farrell entering talks comes some more details on the story for this one. Washington will play a reclusive lawyer who has worked for decades as a legal researcher for his beloved mentor. But when the older man passes away, he is snapped up by a well known, but far more cutthroat firm where he discovers a case that changes his life... And could potentially threaten it.
As for Farrell, he is circling playing the slick, wealthy legal eagle who initially recruits Washington to his new job. If he makes a deal, he will be working on the film starting later this month in Los Angeles. Farrell most recently worked on Sofia Coppola's (Somewhere) latest, The Beguiled and reunited with his Lobster (2015) director Yorgos Lanthimos for The Killing Of A Sacred Deer.
