Alcon Entertainment has added Terrence Howard (Red Tails, On the Road) to round out the impressive cast that has mobilized for Prisoners, Deadline reports.

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Viola Davis, Maria Bello and Paul Dano. The cast has responded to the screenplay by Contraband scribe Aaron Guzikowski, and the chance to work with Oscar nominated Incendies director Denis Villeneuve.

The story revolves around a small-town carpenter (Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are abducted. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against a detective (Gyllenhaal), a hot shot cop with confidence to burn, assigned to the case.” A project said to have echoes of The Silence of the Lambs and Seven.

Principal photography starts in February with a September 20, 2013 release planned.
