Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick And More Join The Cast Of Safe House

When you're a director set to break out with your first English language film and you have Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington playing your hero and villain, you're in a pretty damn good place. When you're filling out the rest of your cast with names like Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick, Sam Shephard and Liam Cunningham, however, you're cup is running over. It's a good day to be Daniel Espinosa.

Variety is reporting that the four actors have joined the cast of Safe House, Espinosa's newest project about a young FBI agent (Reynolds) who has to transport a world class criminal (Washington) after their safe house has been compromised. Based on a script by David Guggenheim, the movie goes into production next week and is scheduled to be released on February 10 next year. As previously reported, Tim McGraw will also be in the film.

I loved this project when it was just the idea of Denzel Washington playing a villain for the first time since Training Day, but with each additional casting announcement it's only gotten better and better. I can't wait to see who comes next.
