French-Senegalese actor Omar Sy (Lupin) is set to co-star in Lionsgate action-thriller film Shadow Force.
Shadow Force follows an estranged couple with a bounty on their heads who must go on the run with their son to avoid their former employer, a shadow ops unit that has been sent to kill them.
The thriller will be directed by Joe Carnahan (Copshop, The Grey) and executive produced by Kathy Atkinson, Danielle Reardon and Jennifer Wiley-Stockton. US actor Kerry Washington (Scandal) will co-star with Sy.
Announcing the news on his Instagram page, Sy said: “Kerry Washington and Joe Carnahan, thumbs up.”
The release date for Shadow Force has yet to be announced. Sy is best known as the star of hit Netflix series Lupin, which debuted last year and has been renewed for a third part. He has also partnered with the streaming giant to develop original feature films.
