Actress Amber Heard has landed the female lead in Motor City for Warner Bros. and director Albert Hughes. We reported in September that Dominic Cooper will star in Motor City.

Chad St. John wrote the Motor City script, which landed on the Black List in 2009. The story follows an ex-con (Dominic Cooper) who seeks revenge against the men who framed him. No details were given for Amber Heard's character.

Albert Hughes is directing Motor City, with Joel Silver and Andrew Rona producing for Silver Pictures.

It isn't known when production will begin on Motor City.
