No details were given for Crispin Glover or Martin Klebba's roles. Dominic Purcell, Sticky Fingaz, Rebecca Da Costa, and David Shumbris also star.
David Grovic is directing from an original screenplay by James Russo, which was rewritten by the director and Paul Conway. Production is already under way, although no plans for release were announced.
