While I wasn’t a huge fan, Orphan was quite popular among the user reviews here on Bloody Disgusting. Mix that with a love for the House of Wax remake, you are surely going to be looking forward to Jaume Collet-Serra’s latest Dark Castle collaboration, Unknown White Male, which has officially started full casting. Beyond the break you’ll find the next two names attached to the thriller starring Liam Neeson.

The story centers on a man who awakens from a coma to find that someone else has assumed his identity, and no one, including his wife, believes him. With the help of a young woman, he sets out to prove who he is.
Jones will play Neeson’s wife, who gets caught up in a conspiracy regarding her husband. Kruger will play a Berlin taxi driver and Neeson’s unexpected ally. Jaume Collet-Serra will direct from a screenplay penned by Oliver Butcher, Stephen Cornwell and Karl Gajdusek.
Lensing is scheduled to begin in late January in Berlin.
Joel Silver is producing “Unknown White Male” with Leonard Goldberg and Andrew Rona. Steve Richards, Sarah Meyer and Peter McAleese exec produce.
As with all Dark Castle films, Warner Bros. will distribute. Dark Castle is in post-production on comicbook-based actioner “The Losers.”
Jones, who is best known for starring on the hit series “Mad Men,” next appears on the bigscreen in the Philip Seymour Hoffman starrer “Pirate Radio.”
Kruger was a star of the summer hit “Inglourious Basterds.” Her credits also include Disney’s “National Treasure” films.
