We've got some casting news to throw your way today as Deadline reports that WORLD WAR Z star Sterling Jerins (pictured) has signed for a role in THE COUP for director John Eric Dowdle (DEVIL). This news comes in right after the last casting update of Lake Bell landing a role in the flick as well. Bell's character, Annie Dwyer, is a woman who is loved by everyone and has a seemingly perfect family life, but wonders sometimes if she should be happier than she is.
Together they will join the previously announced Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan in the thriller.
THE COUP follows an American family living in Southeast Asia who get caught in the middle of a violent revolution. They must flee to safety while being hunted by a murderous rebel leader.
Dowdle wrote the script with his brother Drew Dowdle. Production is slated to begin in Thailand on Oct. 31.
