Stephen Lang Joins Pawn
Along with Nikki Reed and Sean Faris

Stephen Lang Joins Pawn

While we’re not sure Stephen Lang truly enjoyed chomping the scenery in Conan or whether he’s really having fun grumping it up as a sub-Colonel Quaritch-type colony leader on TV sci-fi show Terra Nova, we’re much happier to see him signing on to the cast of indie crime drama Pawn.

We first reported on the movie a couple of days ago, when it already featured Michael Chiklis (who’s also producing the pic) and Forest Whitaker in the tale of a hostage situation that starts to go badly because the law enforcement types and mobsters using it as a twisted chess game make some terrible moves.

The cast has exploded in size, with Lang, Nikki Reed, Sean Faris, Marton Csokas, Jessica Szohr and Jonathan Bennett all jumping aboard.

David A Armstrong, a cinematographer who worked on several of the Saw franchise entries, is on to direct, working from a script by Jay Anthony White.

Lang, meanwhile, will next be seen in another crime pic, Officer Down, and murder drama Dancehall.
