Building up an A-list lineup of cast, The Weinstein Company has picked up Harrison Ford, Ray Liotta, and Sean Penn to all make appearances in its new immigration drama "Crossing Over", Variety has reported.
Described as the "Traffic of illegal immigration", the project presents intersecting storylines covering the controversial topic of immigration and those who will do anything to enter the States. Ford is billed as an enforcement agent who stages raids designed to corral illegals while Liotta will play a USCIS district adjudicator, a bureaucrat dealing with the problems of illegals.
As for Penn, it is said that the Oscar-winning actor will only show up as a cameo and spend mere three days shooting a small role as a border patrol agent. Filming is scheduled to start April 11 this year with Wayne Kramer directing from a script he himself wrote as well as producing alongside Frank Marshall and Gregg Taylor.
