In the movie, Bello (A History of Violence, TV series Prime Suspect) will portray the wife of the carpenter played by Hugh Jackman, whose daughter goes missing with her best friend. He decides to take the law into his own hands when the cops fail him, until hotshot police officer Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) gets in his way.
Melissa Leo, Viola Davis and Paul Dano complete the cast of main characters for the Alcon Entertainment production. The movie, which is reportedly a criminal thriller in the same vein as box office hits Se7en and Silence of the Lambs, will hit theaters on September 20, 2013 in North America.
