Maria Bello signs on to star in <strong><em>Prisoners</em></strong>
Maria Bello has joined the growing cast of Prisoners for Warner Bros. and director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies).

Hugh Jackman stars as Keller, a carpenter and father whose world is rocked when his daughter and her friend are suddenly kidnapped. Unsatisfied with the efforts of local law enforcement, the man takes matters into his own hands, searching for his little girl himself. Maria Bello will play Keller's wife Grace. Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano, and Viola Davis also star.

Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband) wrote the screenplay, with Alcon Entertainment's Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson producing alongside Kira Davis and Adam Kolbrenner. Production is scheduled to begin early next year.
