Pic adds Liam Cunningham, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick, Sam Shepard

Universal has rounded out its cast for the Ryan Reynolds-Denzel Washington thriller “Safe House,” adding Liam Cunningham, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick and Sam Shepard to the mix.

Pic centers on a CIA trainee (Reynolds) who must transport a criminal (Washington) targeted by assasins.

Daniel Espinosa (“Easy Money”) is directing the script penned by David Guggenheim. Scott Stuber produces through his Stuber Prods. Aim is to start lensing next week to make a Feb. 10, 2012, release date. Trevor Macy exec produces.

Universal has fast-tracked this project since acquiring the rights to the spec last year. The script was on the 2010 Black List of the top unproduced screenplays, and Washington boarded the project soon after Universal acquired rights.

The addition of the four supporting thesps was first reported Tuesday on Variety.com.

Cunningham just finished shooting Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse” and Gleeson can be seen next in “The Guard,” which Sony Classics picked up at Sundance.

Shepard most recently appeared in “Fair Game,” and Patrick was last seen in “Five Minarets in New York.”Cunningham is represented by Management 360 and Independent Talent in London, and Gleeson is repped by Principal Entertainment. Patrick is repped by Paradigm and Coronel Group, and Shepard is repped by ICM.
