Apparently this week has been one hell of a week for casting agents and their actors.

First off, Variety is reporting that Tim Roth is currently looking to close a deal that would see him join the quite eclectic cast of the upcoming Nicholas Jarecki film, ARBITRAGE.

Already featuring Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, up-and-coming star Brit Marling, and rapper Drake, the film follows a hedge fund manager who attempts to sell his shady empire to a bank before all of his transgressions are revealed. The film will begin shooting shortly, and will see Roth  play a man named Michael Gower, “a detective investigating a murder.” Also written by Jarecki, this is definitely one of the more interesting financial-based projects we’ve seen come down the pipeline.

In other casting news, Californication star Madeline Zima has joined the cast of the upcoming thriller, STORAGE, according to THR

Co-written and directed by Matt Winn (who wrote with Chris Denne), the film follows a woman “who discovers a terrifying secret when she becomes trapped in an underground storage facility with a group of strangers.” As a fan of Zima, at least from what I’ve seen of her, this is definitely an interesting project, and one that’s all the more compelling for having her in the lead role. She’s a fantastic actress, and one that could really do well within a film like this.
