NEW YORK — Gabriel Mann will co-star with Kevin Spacey, Kate Winslet and Laura Linney in “The Life of David Gale,” the Alan Parker-directed drama for Universal and Intermedia.

Scripted by Charles Randolph, the Saturn/Dirty Hands co-production revolves around an opponent of capital punishment (Spacey) who winds up on death row after being convicted of murdering another death penalty activist. Mann will play an intern working with a reporter (Winslet) who is trying to stop the execution.

Mann, best known for “High Art” and “Things Behind the Sun,” recently completed “Buffalo Soldiers” and “The Bourne Identity.” He just wrapped the Steve Gaghan-directed “Abandon.” Mann is repped by UTA and managers Michael McConnell and Rochelle Parker.
