Frank Langella hears ‘Male’ call

Actor joins Dark Castle thriller

Frank Langella has been set to star with Liam Neeson, January Jones and Diane Kruger in “Unknown White Male,” the Dark Castle thriller.

Neeson plays a man who awakens from a coma to find somebody else has assumed his identity. Langella plays Cole, who comes forward as the coma guy’s colleague and gets involved as he tries to reclaim his identity.

Shooting starts January in Berlin, with Warner Bros. distributing. Joel Silver produces with Leonard Goldberg and Andrew Rona. Steve Richards, Sarah Meyer and Peter McAleese are exec producers.

Deal continues the momentum that Langella built off his Oscar nominated role in “Frost/Nixon.” He last appeared in “The Box” and most recently wrapped a role in the Oliver Stone-directed “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” and the Andrew Jarecki-directed “All Good Things.”
