Joining him in the movie are Aubrey Plaza, Oliver Platt and more.
Aubrey Plaza, Oliver Platt and Jeff Goldblum have joined the cast of Mortdecai, the action comedy starring Johnny Depp. Based on Kyril Bonfiglioli’s series of novels, the film has already wrapped production in London and is now moving to Los Angeles.
Depp stars as an art dealer and rogue in search of a stolen painting that holds the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn and Paul Bettany also star in the film, which Lionsgate will distribute. It marks the first project under OddLot Entertainment’s new co-production and co-financing deal with Lionsgate.
The film has added a troika of busy actors to an already strong cast. Plaza, a star of NBC’s Parks & Recreation, continues to build her film resume after roles in comedies such as Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and Safety Not Guaranteed. She starred as a misfit teenage girl in last summer’s The To Do List and plays the title character in the upcoming Life After Beth.
Platt, a regular supporting player in movies, TV and theatre, will appear in five movies opening this year, including Jon Favreau’s Chef and Michael Cuesta’s Kill The Messenger while Goldblum just finished a run in the play Domesticated. — Reuters
