Barry Sloane ("Hollyoaks") is set to join Joseph Ruben's thriller "Penthouse North" says Variety
In David Loughery's script Michelle Monaghan plays a blind photojournalist forced to play a deadly game of cat and mouse with a sadistic criminal (Michael Keaton) who will stop at nothing to retrieve a fortune of stolen diamonds hidden in her penthouse apartment.
Sloane will play Chad, Keaton's partner in crime, who poses as a helpful stranger in order to get a crucial piece of information. His own life is endangered when he is forced to call his sadistic boss for help.
Loughery (Lakeview Terrace), will produce the pic with Jeff Sackman and Michael Baker.
Shooting kicks off next month in Ottawa.
