"The Closer" star becomes the first female talent recruited for the high-concept thriller.
Finally finding an opposite match for Gerard Butler in "Game", Lakeshore Entertainment has picked up "The Closer" star Kyra Sedgwick to join the actor in the cast of the high-concept thriller.
Also recruited into the lineup is Michael C. Hall, widely known for his role as David Fisher in HBO's drama series "Six Feet Under." Filming reportedly is scheduled to start next year in January under the direction of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who both also penned the script.
Taking place in the near future when mind-control technology has taken society by storm, the flick finds Butler playing Kable, the top-ranked warrior in the highest-rated game, called "Slayers." With his every move tracked by millions, the man's ultimate challenge is to regain his identity and bring down the system that has imprisoned him.
