The always incredible Christoph Waltz is the latest edition to Stephen Gaghan's action thriller "Candy Store". Robert De Niro is already locked in, as well as Jason Clarke and Omar Sy.
In addition to helming, Gaghan is producing alongside Allison Shearmur, working from a script that he co-wrote with Shannon Burke.
Set in the criminal underworld of Brooklyn, the story revolves around a former operative (Clarke), who learns that the organization he fought is now living within a close proximity to him. He then partners with a local cop lacking credibility (De Niro) to investigate, and is set up against an international sex-trader (Sy) and a Cold War mafia member posing as an American suburbanite (Waltz). There's also a role calling for a beautiful girl, planning to detonate a nuclear bomb in Manhattan. The role has not been cast yet.
Waltz is always a fantastic addition to every film he joins, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this one shakes out. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
