X-Men and Taken actress Famke Janssen and Terminator 2’s Robert Patrick have joined the cast of forthcoming crime thriller The Poison Rose, alongside Morgan Freeman and John Travolta.
Janssen (53), bless her, will play Travolta’s (64) love interest. Supposedly former high school sweethearts, the two find that spark once more after Janssen hires him to investigate a murder. Travolta will play the atypical hard drinking/smoking/gambling PI-type.
George Gallo (writer of Bad Boys) will direct, from a screenplay he penned with first-time writer Richard Salvatore (based on Salvatore’s presently-unpublished novel of the same name).
Famke Janssen can next be seen in Cuba Gooding Jr.’s directorial debut Louisiana Caviar, due out later this year, and described as “a movie about money, sex, power, corruption – and somebody getting fed to alligators”.
The Poison Rose is currently lacking a release date, but filming is expected to begin shortly.
