Law, Whitaker set for thriller

Duo to star in 'Repossession Mambo'

Jude Law and Forest Whitaker are set to star in “The Repossession Mambo” for Universal Pictures.

Thriller marks the feature directing debut of Miguel Sapochnik. Stuber/Parent’s Scott Stuber and Mary Parent produce.

Morality tale is set in the near future, when artificial organs can be bought on credit, with the understanding that defaulting on payment will result in a fatal repossession.

Eric Garcia and Garret Lerner wrote the script based on a novel by Garcia, and they’ve been working on “The Repossession Mambo” with Sapochnik for the past four years.

The film begins shooting this summer, which should put it a heartbeat ahead of “Repo! The Genetic Opera!”; latter pic is a musical but harvests similar organ-donor repo turf. Twisted Pictures is financing the latter pic, which “Saw” helmer Darren Lynn Bousman is directing.

Sapochnik wrote and directed short film “The Dreamer.”
