According to Variety.com, Atlas Entertainment has hired Jamie Foxx to star in Noam Murro’s drama “Blink” with production starting this fall. Murro will direct from a Black List script written by Hernany Perla. Atlas Entertainment’s William Green and Aaron Ginsburg are producing with Atlas’ Jake Kurily in place as an executive producer. Highland Film Group is negotiating international sales at the Cannes Film Festival.
Foxx will play a hospital worker tasked with caring for a mysterious victim of a bank robber. As the two become closer, it’s revealed Foxx’s character has ulterior motives of his own.
Murro recently directed Warner Bros.’ “300: Rise of an Empire,” starring Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green and Lena Headey. Academy Award winner Foxx recently starred as villain Electro in “Amazing Spider-Man 2” and updated Daddy Warbucks character Will Stacks in the 2014 “Annie” remake.
