We reported back in March that JCVD director Mabrouk El Mechri will be directing a new film project and now he has found the star of his film. Heat Vision Blog is reporting that Henry Cavill has secured the lead role in The Cold Light of Day.

Cavill, who stars in the TV series The Tudors, will play an arrogant Wall Street stockbroker who gives into his family's wishes and takes a vacation in Spain, when his family gets kidnapped and he becomes entangled with government conspiracies and must uncover his father's deepest secret to return his family to safety.

Mabrouk El Mechri will direct from a script by Richard Price, who is rewriting the original script by Scott Wiper and John Petro. The film is slated to start production on September 6 with filming to take place in Spain.
