Jason Lee set to join ‘Enemy’

Actor Jason Lee, whose credits include “Mallrats” and “Chasing Amy,” is set to join Will Smith and Gene Hackman in the Jerry Bruckheimer Prods./Touchstone Pictures political conspiracy thriller “Enemy of the State.”

Tony Scott is directing the film in which Regina King and Scott Caan also have signed to appear. Pic was scripted by David Marconi and Aaron Sorkin.

In the film, Smith portrays a labor lawyer who is being hunted by the National Security Agency after he has been slipped by Lee’s character — a former reporter at a radical newspaper — a tape implicating the NSA in the death of a U.S. Congressman.

Lee will jump from lensing the indie pic “American Cuisine” to “Enemy of the State,” which begins shooting in early November on locations in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.

Lee has also appeared in the indies “Drawing Flies” and “Kissing a Fool,” the latter co-starring David Schwimmer, Bonnie Hunt and Vanessa Angel.

Lee is repped by UTA.
