Susan Sarandon is set to join Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Ric Roman Waugh’s action thriller “Snitch”. According to THR, Sarandon is negotiating to play an ambitious U.S. attorney who believes that a drug bust can help her political career.
Based on a “Frontline” documentary, “Snitch” centers on a suburban father who is hit hard when his teenage son is sentenced to 30 years under mandatory minimum drug laws. In order to reduce his son’s sentence, the father goes undercover to serve up a senior drug dealer.
Waugh also re-wrote the script after Justin Haythe originally wrote the script.
This sounds like a really great film. Can’t wait to see who else will join. “Snitch” will be out in 2013.
