According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Marsden, who recently wrapped the Summit Entertainment/Endgame Entertainment production The Alibi, will segue to the indie film 10th and Wolf.

Bobby Moresco is directing based on a story he and Chazz Palminteri came up with. It finds Marsden as Tommy Santaro, a member of the Philadelphia street crew known as "10th and Wolf." He accepts a deal to serve in the military instead of going to jail for getting mixed up in a mob hit only to get back in the wrong crowd in order to save his brother from going to prison.

Shooting starts next month on the East Coast. Marsden was seen this summer opposite Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in New Line Cinema's summer sleeper hit The Notebook. He next stars in the Merchant Ivory production Heights.
