With the film’s cast starting to truly round out, it’s about time that Daniel Espinosa finds another villain for his English-language debut, SAFE HOUSE.

Latino Review has revealed that Fares Fares (who stared in Espinosa’s film, SNABBA CASH) will be joining the film’s cast, in the role of Emile Vargas, a “gun for hire.” One of the film’s bad guys, he joins an impressive cast, spearheaded by Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington, who play an intelligence agent and prisoner who must make it to a safe house after the prisoner becomes the focus of a series of attacks. Penned by David Guggenheim with rewrites by Terry George, this is definitely an interesting film that only seems to get more and more compelling as the days go.

In other casting news, Deadline reports that Goran Visnjic has joined the cast of David Fincher’s upcoming take on THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. The former ER star has been tapped for three films, which include two sequels that seem inevitable at this point. 

He’ll play Dragan Armansky, CEO of Milton Security, who ends up becoming the employer of one Lisbeth Salander.  He joins Daniel Criag, Rooney Mara, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, David Dencik, Stellan Skarsgård, Yorick van Wageningen,  and Bengt C.W. Carlsson, in what is one of this year’s most hotly anticipated films.
