Bruce Willis starrer 'Surrogates' adds cast

Empty

Ving Rhames, Radha Mitchell and Rosamund Pike have joined Bruce Willis in the sci-fi thriller "The Surrogates" for Disney.

Jonathan Mostow is directing the film based on the graphic novel by Robert Venditti and artist Brett Weldele of Top Shelf Comix. Michael Ferris and John Brancato -- the writing duo that last teamed with Mostow on "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" -- penned the script. Mandeville Film's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing along with Max Handelman and Elizabeth Banks.

Ned Vaughn ("Frost/Nixon") was also previously cast in the film, which is set in the future where humans live risk-free lives through robot surrogates that are eternally young, perfect-looking versions of themselves.

Rhames plays a charismatic cult figure who disdains the use of surrogates and tries to lead an uprising against the "new world order."

Mitchell plays the professional partner of Willis' character, a cop that through his surrogate investigates the murders of others' surrogates.

Pike plays his wife.

Production is set to begin in late April on the film, which will be released through Touchstone.

Rhames, who recently wrapped production on Paramount Vantage's "The Goods: The Don Ready Story" and will appear in the upcoming "The Gift," is repped by Innovative Artists.

Mitchell, repped by CAA, manager Rick Ax and attorney Doug Stone, will appear in the upcoming "Henry Poole Is Here" and "The Children of Huang Shi."

Pike just wrapped production on "An Education" and will appear in the upcoming "Fugitive Pieces." She is repped by Endeavor and Magnolia Entertainment.
