Terrence Howard has joined Viola DavisJake GyllenhaalPaul DanoHugh Jackman and Melissa Leo in Dennis Villeneuve's thriller Prisoner.

The story (from a script penned by Aaron Guzikowski - Contraband), centers on a "small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), a hot-shot cop with confidence to burn."

No word on what roles Terrence Howard and Viola Davis will be playing in this.

The Oscar-nominated Villeneuve's last work was the critically acclaimed Incendies, so it looks like both actors are in very good company, in terms of the other actors involved, and in good hands, in terms of who's directing.

Alcon8:38 Productions and Madhouse Entertainment are all producing.

Ed McDonnell and John Stark will executive produce.

Production is scheduled to begin in early 2013, for a fall 2013 release, via Warner Bros.

    This one will be filming in Atlanta. The quality of films shot in Atlanta has really improved this year. "Flight" was a big step in the right direction.

    Viola is Hollywood's go-to 'stoic black woman'.

    I bet you Terrence will be a harassed detective or the main criminal and Viola will DEFINITELY play a harassed lawyer or detective that only gets her best lines at the end of the movie...
