HOLLYWOOD — Olivier Martinez will join Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell and Michelle Rodriguez in Columbia Pictures’ “SWAT.”
In the pic, the Los Angeles SWAT team must protect an international criminal (Martinez) as he’s transferred to a secure facility. However, the con has offered $100 million to anyone who can arrange his escape.
Written by David Ayer and directed by Clark Johnson, pic is produced by Neal Moritz, Dan Halsted and Chris Lee. Principal photography begins in October.
Martinez, repped by ICM and Parseghian Planco, most recently completed work on Robert Allan Ackerman’s retelling of “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone” for Showtime. Credits also include “Before Night Falls” with Javier Bardem and, most recently, “Unfaithful.”
