Maggie Grace Re-Teaming With Luc Besson For LOCKOUT
Actress Maggie Grace will again be appearing in a Luc Besson production as she signs on for “Lockout.” Besson is producing the project through his Europacorp company that was built on the strength of several films that featured many of the same writers, directors, and actors.
The latest film from Besson’s company has Guy Pearce attached to star as a man convicted of espionage against the U.S. Pearce can avoid retribution from the country if he saves the President’s daughter from a prison located in space that is controlled by the violent criminals it once housed. Grace will play the role of the President’s daughter in the film which begins shooting on September 7. Sony Pictures is in negotiations to distribute the film and have previously released Besson’s “The Professional” and “The Fifth Element.”
Grace appeared in Besson’s film “Taken” and is lined up to appear in “Taken 2.” She recently finished work on “Faster” starring Dwayne Johnson and will star in “The Experiment.”
