Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken are starring in the EuropaCorp project.

Mark Consuelos has signed on to EuropaCorp’s high-concept comedy Nine Lives, which will star Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, Christopher Walken and Robbie Amell.

EuropaCorp is financing, producing and distributing the movie with Christophe Lambert and Luc Besson signed on as producers.

His earlier TV credits include American Horror Story and All My Children. On the film side, he recently appeared in 2014’s A Walk Among the Tombstones. He’s repped by CAA and Management 360.

EuropaCorp's other upcoming projects include The Transporter Refueled, opening on Sept. 4; Shut In starring Naomi Watts which will be released on February 19, 2016; and the action-thriller The Lake starring Sullivan Stapleton and JK Simmons, out July 15, 2016.
