VANCOUVER – Cuba Gooding Jr. has boarded the action thriller Gridlocked from Cody Hackman‘s Hackybox Pictures.
The Canadian film, to be directed by Allan Ungar, will see Gooding Jr. play a former SWAT leader who is being shadowed by an arrogant movie star. Together, they must organize the survivor on an attack on a training facility to fight back against a team of mercenaries.
Hackybox, which is shopping the picture in Berlin, is financing and producing the feature, which is based on a script by Ungar and Rob Robol.
Gridlocked is set to shoot this spring in Toronto and London, Ontario.
Bruno Marino, Geoff Hart and Hackman are producing.
Hackybox Pictures recently completed the mixed martial arts thriller Tapped, which stars Michael Biehn and Anderson Silva.
The film will be released by Lionsgate and VVS Films in May.
Gooding Jr. is represented by ICM Partners.
