As I was saying, David Oyelowo is having a very good year! 

The British thespian has joined the cast of the thriller A Most Violent Year, co-starring alongside Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the Participant Media project, which is being directed by J. C. Chandor.

Set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically one of the most violent years in the city's history, the story revolves around an American immigrant (Isaac) and his wife (Chastain) as they try to expand their business amid a wave of violence and corruption.

No word on what role exactly Oyelowo has signed up to play.

Shooting on the film started this week, with a fall/winter release eyed, as a potential awards contender, says THR.

After co-starring in Lee Daniels' The Butler, the 37-year-old Oyelowo recently added the thriller Captive to his burgeoning slate of upcoming projects, that also includes Cynthia Mort's Nina Simone film; starring as Sugar Ray Robinson in a previously-announced biopic; an indie drama titled Nightingale; reuniting with director Ava DuVernay to play MLK in Selma; co-starring in Christopher Nolan's upcoming Interstellar; is said to have met with director JJ Abrams regarding a role in the upcoming Star Wars franchise reboot; starring in yet another film about a notable real-life human being in Seretse Khama - Botswana's first president from 1966-80 - in a feature film titled A United Kingdom; and more...
