Deadline reports that Fear the Walking Dead and Dead in the Water actor Nick Stahl (Riley) has been cast in a new film titled Informant. He will star with Dominic Purcell and Kate Bosworth and be reunited with Mel Gibson. Stahl and Gibson starred together in the 1993 film Man without a Face.
Informant is directed by Michael Oblowitz, who also co-wrote the film with Michael Kaycheck and Brooke Nasser. The film follows the story of a police detective who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and, to ensure his family is taken care of when he is gone, sets up a plan to be killed in the line of duty. This will allow his family to get the best bureau benefits. He talks his best friend and partner into helping him cover up the plan.
The film is currently in production.
