It was a rather nice surprise, learning that Sam Rockwell already began shooting a starring vehicle. We just don’t have enough of them, you know? Now, Deadline has the full cast for A Single Shot, which is already confirmed to have William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, and Jason Isaacs on board; the latest names thrown into the fray are no worse, being Melissa Leo, Joe Anderson, Kelly Reilly, and Ophelia Lovibond.
David M. Rosenthal is directing A Single Shot — adapted by Matthew F. Jones, from his own novel — which stars Rockwell as John Moon, a hunter who comes across some money after accidentally killing a young girl. With angry townspeople and “hardened killers on his trail,” Moon is forced to save his family and his own skin. Unanimous Entertainment, Unified Pictures, Media House Capital, and Bron Studios are producing.
Then there’s one other item in the casting realm, with Variety bringing the news that Amanda Peet is the third person to join Identity Theft, which stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy; Seth Gordon semi-recently signed as its director. Written by Steve Conrad, rewritten by Craig Mazin, the movie follows the troubles encountered by a man (Bateman) when a woman (McCarthy) steals his identity. Hilarity (hopefully) ensues.
Details on Peet‘s role aren’t available right now, though that should change as more casting comes in on the film.
Is A Single Shot shaping up nicely? How do you feel about Peet’s addition to Identity Theft?
