Duo to costar with Neeson in Dark Castle thriller

January Jones and Diane Kruger have signed to star alongside Liam Neeson in the Dark Castle thriller “Unknown White Male.”

Jones will play Neeson’s wife, who gets caught up in a conspiracy regarding her husband. Kruger will play a Berlin taxi driver and Neeson’s unexpected ally. Jaume Collet-Serra will direct from a screenplay penned by Oliver Butcher, Stephen Cornwell and Karl Gajdusek.

Lensing is scheduled to begin in late January in Berlin.

Joel Silver is producing “Unknown White Male” with Leonard Goldberg and Andrew Rona. Steve Richards, Sarah Meyer and Peter McAleese exec produce.

As with all Dark Castle films, Warner Bros. will distribute. Dark Castle is in post-production on comicbook-based actioner “The Losers.”

Jones, who is best known for starring on the hit series “Mad Men,” next appears on the bigscreen in the Philip Seymour Hoffman starrer “Pirate Radio.”

Kruger was a star of the summer hit “Inglourious Basterds.” Her credits also include Disney’s “National Treasure” films.
