James Franco To Star In Action Thriller MACE From Director Jon Amiel

James Franco Picture

Oscar-nominated actor James Franco ("127 Hours", "The Disaster Artist") has signed on to star in the action thriller "Mace" from director Jon Amiel ("Copycat", "The Singing Detective").

The film follows the story of two very different kinds of cops. Mace (Franco) is a veteran officer, corrupt and dangerously unhinged, while Virgil Woods is a young rookie who believes that he can change the system that fosters cops like Mace from within. Inspired by the racial injustice on the streets of America, Woods refuses to be bullied and pits his principles against the amoral Mace, risking everything he believes in to stop Mace from destroying the city when Mace unleashes a gang war to cover up his crimes.

The screenplay is penned by David Chisholm ("American Gothic", "The Wizard"). This is the first production from Meyers Media Group. The film is in pre-production and will begin filming later this year in New Jersey.

Myriad Pictures is launching worldwide sales on the title in Cannes next week. Lawrence Steven Meyers, Randy Dannenberg and John Evangelides will produce. Brendan McDonald and Kirk D'Amico will serve as executive producer with Jonathan Tybel as an associate producer.
