It's been a long, strange trip for "A Single Shot." Seemingly stuck in development hell, the project had an array of names circling over the past couple of years -- Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Emily Mortimer, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, James Badge Dale, Juno Temple, Leslie Mann, Thomas Haden Church -- but began finally firming things up this week. Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and William H. Macy (who has been attached through various incarnations) were confirmed, and now we know the rest of the folks joining them.

Ophelia Lovibond Melissa Leo A Single Shot

It's been a long, strange trip for "A Single Shot." Seemingly stuck in development hell, the project had an array of names circling over the past couple of years -- Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Emily Mortimer, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, James Badge Dale, Juno Temple, Leslie Mann, Thomas Haden Church -- but began finally firming things up this week. Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs and William H. Macy (who has been attached through various incarnations) were confirmed, and now we know the rest of the folks joining them.

Deadline reveal that Brit actress Ophelia Lovibond ("No Strings Attached," "London Boulevard") and Melissa Leo round out the cast along with Joe Anderson and Kelly Reilly. No exact word yet on their parts, but with cameras now rolling on the pic, we guess we'll find out soon enough. Based on the book by Matthew F. Jones, the story follows Rockwell's John Moon, a hunter who accidentally shoots a teenage girl and then discovers a small fortune while trying to dispose of her body. But he's soon on the run from killers looking to retrieve their money, and he's forced to defend his life and his family.

So it all sounds pretty good. But after dragging this long the pressure will be on director David M. Rosenthal to deliver the goods. But he's got a pretty formidable cast here, and given this much time to fine tune it, we hope there's a solid little thriller on the way.
