Jones is billed to play a career soldier whose son mysteriously goes missing not long after returning to U.S. from Iraq while Theron will portray a local police detective who helps him to reveal the mystery behind the disappearance.

Born in London, Ontario, Canada, Haggis originally worked his way in entertainment industry through TV series before finally ventured into film feature in 2000 after being attached to pen the script of "Million Dollar Baby."
