Heard, Isaak find roles as 'Informers'


Amber Heard and Chris Isaak have joined the ensemble cast of "The Informers," an adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel being directed by Gregor Jordan.

Set in 1980s Los Angeles, the script follows seven stories taking course during a week in the life of movie executives, rock stars, a vampire and other morally challenged characters.

Heard plays a sexually promiscuous woman caught up in the decadence of 1980s L.A., while Isaak will play a sex- and alcohol-obsessed father who takes his young son to Hawaii.

Heard and Isaak join a cast that includes Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Brandon Routh, Winona Ryder and Mickey Rourke.

Senator Entertainment is financing the drama, with Senator's Marco Weber producing. Senator head of production Vanessa Coifman is executive producing. Ellis and Nick Jarecki co-wrote the script.

Shooting is under way in Los Angeles and then moves to Uruguay and Buenos Aires.

Heard's casting reunites her with Senator, the company that picked up her horror movie "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" from the Weinstein Co. Senator will release the movie next year. Heard also starred in Kevin Williamson's CW series "Hidden Palms" and next appears in Judd Apatow's "Pineapple Express." She is repped by Endeavor, Joan Hyler Management and Jackoway Tyerman.

Isaak most recently appeared in John Waters' "A Dirty Shame" with Tracey Ullman and Johnny Knoxville. He is repped by IFA Talent.
