The Hollywood Reporter announced later today that Kate Bosworth is joining Jason Statham and James Franco in Homefront, Millennium Filmsâ€™ action movie scripted by Sylvester Stallone. Kate Bosworth is known for films including “Superman Returns” and “Remember the Titans,” and is engaged to Michael Polish – which you may remember from Stay Cool.
The project, with Gary Fleder in the directorâ€™s chair, follows an ex-DEA agent (Statham) who seeks a peaceful life and moves his family to a quiet town. Tranquility is shattered when he crosses path with a drug traffickers and a meth kingpin named Gator (Franco).
Bosworth will play Gatorâ€™s meth-addicted sister, who inadvertently starts the feud when her son, a bully, gets his butt handed to him by Stathamâ€™s daughter at school. She turns to Gator, psychotically wanting retribution.
Production is due to begin October 1 in New Orleans.
