Maria Bello (A History of Violence) has signed on to the kidnapping thriller Prisoners, says Deadline.
She will play Grace, the wife of Hugh Jackman’s Keller character in the movie. Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano and Viola Davis are also in the Denis Villeneuve-directed film.
“‘Prisoners’ follows a small town carpenter, Jackman’s Keller, who tries to find his kidnapped daughter and her best friend himself after the police can’t.”
Gyllenhaal is the detective assigned to the case – a cop who doesn’t like civilians getting involved in police work.
Production on the movie is scheduled to start early next year and Warner Bros is planning a September 20, 2013 release.
