Common Joins Joel Kinnaman, Rosamund Pike in Action-Thriller 'Three Seconds'


BLOOM announced today that Joel Kinnaman, Rosamund Pike, Common, and Clive Owen will star in Andrea Di Stefano’s feature adaptation of the best-selling Swedish novel “Three Seconds” by Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström.

“Three Seconds” follows reformed-criminal and former special ops soldier Pete Hoffman who, in order to free himself from jail and return to his wife and daughter, has been working undercover for crooked FBI handlers to infiltrate the Polish mob’s drug trade in New York. In a final step towards freedom, Hoffman must return to the one place he’s fought so hard to leave, Bale Hill Prison, where his mission becomes a race against time when a drug deal goes wrong and threatens his identity as a mole.

The action thriller was written by Matt Cook with revisions by Rowan Joffé and Alex Garland with current revisions by DiStefano.

Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee are producing alongside The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones, Mark Lane and James Harris and Ollie Madden. The Fyzz Facility are also financing the film. Thunder Road’s Jonathan Fuhrman and Magnolia Entertainment’s Shelley Browning are Executive Producers. BLOOM will handle international sales and introduce to buyers at the Cannes International Film Festival this week.

The film is currently in pre-production.

BLOOM’s Alex Walton said: “In ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost,’ Andrea DiStefano delivered a taut, suspenseful film. Andrea has collaborated with our elite production group to heighten ‘Three Seconds’ into a fresh modern New York set thriller that can appeal to audiences worldwide.”

Di Stefano most recently wrote and directed “Escobar: Paradise Lost” starring Benicio Del Toro and Josh Hutcherson.

Repped by CAA and Oasis Entertainment Management Group, Common was most recently seen in “John Wick: Chapter 2.”
