Luke Evans is set to lead the prison thriller "Three Seconds" says Variety.
In this film adaptation of the best-selling novel by authors Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, Evans plays a man who is dispatched by the FBI to infiltrate
the Polish mafia’s New York drug trade. Forced undercover in maximum security prison when his cover’s sprung
and he’s abandoned by the FBI, his only chance of survival is to break
out of the prison or die.
Matt Cook penned the adapted script from which "Black Mirror" and "Peaky Blinders" director Otto Bathurst is calling action.
Basil Iwanyk and Ollie Madden will produce the film.
Production begins this Spring in New York.
