Production Weekly reports that Thoma Jane has joined Diane Lane and Mickey Rourke in John Madden's upcoming big screen adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel, Killshot.

Based on Leonard's thriller in which a woman and her blue-collar husband become the targets of two killers after they stumble on an extortion plot hatched by the bad guys. Carmen (Lane) saw the scam, and she and Wayne (Jane), her ironworker husband, have to pay. Blackbird (Rourke) kills smart and deadly, and Richie kills stupid and crazy. Both are out to erase any living evidence -- and when these lethal partners take up the chase, a safe place from killing is awfully hard to find.

Filming begins October 11th in Toronto.
