Fast Charlie – James Caan and Morena Baccarin join Pierce Brosnan in the Phillip Noyce directed thriller Fast Charlie

Screen Media and Foresight Unlimited today announced James Caan and Morena Baccarin (Deadpool) will star alongside Pierce Brosnan in the upcoming hitman thriller Fast Charlie, to be directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt, Clear & Present Danger). The original screenplay is written by Richard Wenk (The Magnificent Seven, The Equalizer), inspired by the Edgar Award-nominated novel Gun Monkeys by Victor Gischler. Daniel Grodnik (Bobby) and Mitchell Welch (Chain of Command) will produce. Screen Media’s David Fannon and Seth Needle, and Foresight Unlimited’s Mark Damon and Tamara Birkemoe, and David Nagelberg will executive produce on behalf of the companies. Foresight is handling ongoing international sales. The film is scheduled to begin production next week in New Orleans.

Director Phillip Noyce commented on the casting, “I’m absolutely thrilled to have James Caan and Morena Baccarin aboard. I can’t imagine a more perfect pair than Morena and Pierce. Not to be cute, but they really do make a killer couple.”

Producer Daniel Grodnik added, “I brought PHILLIP to America in 1988 to direct BLIND FURY with Rutger Hauer and now 34 years later I’m thrilled to be back on the set with him. With a great script by Richard Wenk, and PIERCE bringing his star power to the role of Charlie, alongside the legendary, James Caan, and the multi-talented Morena Baccarin, Phillip has a vision that will craft a seminal and iconic film to entertain audiences worldwide.

Charlie Swift (Brosnan) has worked for his aging mob boss Stan (Caan) for twenty years, skillfully operating as a prolific fixer and efficient hitman. When a rival boss moves to eliminate Stan and his entire team, he fails in wiping the team clean. Now on his own, Charlie will stop at nothing to avenge his friend and has no plans to leave anyone alive. Morena Baccarin is set to play the female lead ‘Marcie’, the quick-witted ex-wife of a mobster killed by Charlie. Marcie forms an unexpected pairing with Charlie in his revenge against the rival mob.

Academy Award-nominated actor James Caan’s upcoming films include Tom Burruss’s Redemption and André Gordon’s Acre Beyond the Rye. Caan is represented by Cavalry Media.

Primetime Emmy nominated actress Morena Baccarin’s upcoming films include Espen Sandberg’s Beast and Ric Roman Waugh’s Greenland: Migration. Her upcoming TV series include NBC’s “The End Game” as well as an appearance on the FX Network’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. Baccarin is represented by United Talent Agency and managed by Seven Summits Pictures & Management.
