Throughout his career, actor Gary Oldman has garnered only one Oscar nomination, yet has become one of the most beloved thespians around. Collecting one hell of a rogues gallery of performances, Oldman has played a cavalcade of top notch villains during his career, and now according to THR, heâ€™s about to add yet another one, right after garnering his first Best Actor nomination.
The outlet reports that Oldman has joined the cast of Motor City, a project being set up over at WB, with director Albert Hughes attached to helm.
City stars Dominic Cooper and Amber Heard, and follows the story of â€œa small-time hood who is framed and sent to prison, only to exact revenge years later to get back the woman he loves.â€
While the project itself doesnâ€™t sound all that appealing, Oldmanâ€™s involvement definitely adds a lot of intrigue to the film. Toss in the fact that itâ€™s behind directed by Albert Hughes, and you have a thriller that has a lot of potential. Hereâ€™s to hoping it can stick the landing.
