Just a week after picking up a new film project, it seems Jeffrey Dean Morgan has landed yet another role. Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that Morgan has been cast in The Texas Killing Fields.

The film is based off the true story of two Texas police detectives who teamed up to solve numerous unsolved crimes. Sam Worthington has already joined the cast, as we previously reported, as a local homicide detective. It was said in the initial report that Worthington's character was assisted by a New York detective, but it wasn't clear if Morgan was cast in that particular role.

Ami Canaan Mann, daughter of filmmaker Michael Mann, will direct from Donald F. Ferrarone's script. It was said production would start this April in Louisiana.
