Adrien Brody

At this point, "Motor City" is more known for the revolving door of its casting process, and the actors who have come and gone on the project, than anything else. But now the picture is taking a new shape, with a brand new villain and, even more, an actual production schedule.

Variety reports that Adrien Brody now has the villain role previously assigned to Gary Oldman in the movie that has Gerard Butler currently attached to lead, with Albert Hughes directing. Penned by Chad St. John, the story follows a small-time crook who is framed and sent to jail, and then goes after the guys who put him there. But the big twist of the Black List script is that the protagonist apparently only has one line in the whole movie.

Believe it or not, this movie now has a start date of September 17th. No word yet on what happened to Mickey Rourke who just a couple weeks ago was said to be taking a part -- we presume he has since fallen by the wayside, joining the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Dominic Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Clive Owen, Amber Heard and Oldman who have all come and gone on the project. The film will also still need to find its female lead, but we presume word on that will arrive shortly. Will "Motor City" actually make it out the gate this time? It sure looks like it.

    None comparition at all between Gerard Butler and Adrien Brody. The later one's latest low profile Detachment with Tony Kaye is just legendary.

    maybe they're bringing in brody so he can use real life feelings of revenge against butler for breaking the bro code and bumpin uglies with brody's ex madalina ghenea at cannes this year only weeks after she and brody broke up. these actors are soooooo method. lol. brody is a great tho. he'll be the best part of this film.
