Talk about an odd move.

With filming on the upcoming Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds thriller, SAFE HOUSE, already underway, to be getting a name and talent as impeccable as this is indeed a bit of an odd move.

Deadline has revealed that Vera Farmiga has joined the cast of the film, which includes Reynolds, Washington, Brendan Gleeson, Liam Cunningham, Sam Shepard, Robert Patrick, Tim McGraw, Ruben Blades, Nora Arnezeder, and Fares Fares. Directed by Daniel Espinosa (SNABBA CASH), the film will follow a government agent who goes on the run with a prisoner after his safe house gets attacked. Farmiga will play an agent overseeing Reynolds’ lead, in something similar to her turn in SOURCE CODE.

With great buzz behind the film’s screenplay, this is easily one of the more anticipated thrillers coming down the pipeline, and toss in the casting of Farmiga, and this is a project that can’t get here fast enough. She’s a wonderful actress, that while it does sound like a similar turn as to her turn in SOURCE CODE, this sounds like a really great film for her to jump into.
