"Lawless" and "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jason Clarke has confirmed that he will be joining the thriller. MTV caught up with the actor on the red carpet at the Oscars last Sunday and he talked a little bit about his role in the upcoming “Rise Of The Planet of the Apes” sequel. But afterwards, he dropped this little nugget, “Then I’m doing a film with Gaghan after that, Stephen Gaghan. It’s called 'Candy Store.' I can’t tell you what it’s about,” Clarke said.
Luckily, we already know what the upcoming project is about. “Candy Store” follows “a deep cover agent who loses everything and starts over as a beat cop in Brooklyn only to discover the organized operation he was trying to bring down is alive and kicking right under his nose.” Of course, there’s no word on what Jason Clarke’s role will be in the film, but hopefully we’ll get more definitive casting confirmations like this in the near future.
