“Dirty Pretty Things” star Chiwetel Ejiofor will play Denzel Washington’s cop partner in “The Inside Man,” the Imagine Entertainment drama that Spike Lee is directing and Brian Grazer’s producing for Univeral.

Clive Owen and Jodie Foster also star. Russell Gewirtz and Menno Meyjes wrote the script, and Daniel Rosenberg exec produces.

Ejiofor has been working up a storm, starring in the Joss Whedon-directed “Serenity” and wrapping “Four Brothers” with Mark Wahlberg, Touchstone’s “Kinky Boots” and “Red Dust” with Hilary Swank. He was last seen in “Melinda and Melinda” and “Love Actually.” He previously worked for director Lee in “She Hate Me.”
