In September, it was reported that Susan Sarandon had joined wrestler turned actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Ric Roman Waugh’s action thriller “Snitch”. Since then, casting news has been on the quiet front but today, Deadline is reporting that “The Walking Dead”‘s Jon Bernthal has joined the cast.
In the film, Johnson plays a construction company owner who becomes a DEA snitch to reduce his son’s prison sentence. Bernthal plays an ex-con laborer for the construction company who is forced by his boss to help connect him to an underground drug dealer.
Filming is set to begin next month in Louisiana. Sarandon meanwhile is set to play an ambitious U.S. attorney who believes that a drug bust can help her political career. “Snitch” will be out sometime in 2013.
