Armie Hammer has joined the cast of By Virtue Fall for Voltage Pictures and writer-director Sheldon Turner.

The story centers on Armie Hammer's character, a former ATF agent who is framed for a crime he didn't commit by his former partner (Eric Bana). We reported back in March that James Spader, Ryan Phillippe, and Carla Gugino will also star, although we have no further details on their characters.

Sheldon Turner will make his directorial debut with By Virtue Fall, working from his own original screenplay. Jennifer Klein will produce alongside Sheldon Turner.

Production is scheduled to begin next fall, after Armie Hammer wraps on Lone Ranger.
