McAdams (Midnight in Paris, Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) will play Ani Bezzerides, “a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.”
Vaughn (Wedding Crashers, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) stars as Frank Semyon, “a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.”
Kitsch (John Carter, Lone Survivor) plays the character Paul Woodrugh, “a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.”
Reilly (Above Suspicion, Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) plays Semyon’s wife, “a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions.”
