Frank Langella has signed on to star opposite Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, and January Jones in the Jaume Collet-Serra-directed thriller Unknown White Male, according to Variety.
The script is based on the Didier Van Cauwelaert novel Hors de moi (Out of My Head) and tells the story of a man (Neeson) who wakes from a coma following a car accident. He finds that his wife of ten years (Jones) does not recognize him and has struck a relationship with another man who has stolen his identity.
Both Kruger and Langella will portray characters that help the protagonist in his quest to recover his identity and his relationship with his wife.
This will be the fourth project for Langella following his Oscar-nominated performance in Frost/Nixon. He had a memorable role as the enigmatic Arlington Steward in Richard Kelly's The Box and has completed shooting on Andrew Jarecki's thriller All Good Things and Oliver Stone's sequel Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.
