Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi are close to smuggling their way into the cast of Contraband, Variety is reporting. If the deal goes through, the pair will join Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale, who have already been cast in the thriller.
The film, a remake of a 2009 Icelandic film about a security guard who is dragged back in to his former life of crime, is being directed by Baltasar Kormakur, who also co-wrote, produced and starred in the original. Without question, it is the finest Icelandic film I’ve ever come across. No, really. It wins, hands down.
