Michael Gambon joins Law Abiding Citizen

Michael Gambon, Colm Meaney, Leslie Bibb and Theresa Randle have joined the cast of Law Abiding Citizen.

The film, which already stars Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx, is set to be directed by F Gary Gray starting later this month.

Sheldon Turner (who penned The Longest Yard) has recently been hired to polish up the script originally written by Kurt Wimmer, and which has already been re-written once by David Ayer.

Frank Darabont

And let’s not forget Frank Darabont, who had been set to direct the film before leaving due to creative differences.

After a quick game of role reversal, Foxx is now playing the wronged father who sets off on a vigilante course against a District Attorney (Butler) he blames for his family’s deaths. But who know who’ll be playing what by the time the final rewrite arrives?
