Jackson will portray the son of a murdered police officer who has succumbed to the “culture of corruption” that’s infected the force. Delany will play a woman from his past.
Film is directed by Jessy Terrero and written by L. Philippe Casseus, and produced by Mark Canton, Randall Emmett, George Furla and Jackson.
“Freelancers” is part of a 10-picture deal announced last fall that’s backed by a $200 million fund with Lionsgate releasing the films domestically. “Setup,” the first title under the deal, recently completed principal photography with Jackson, Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe starring.
Delany currently stars in the hit ABC series “Body of Proof.” She’s repped by UTA.
