Screen Gems has cast Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson to star in their upcoming thriller, No Good Deed.
No Good Deed is the story of a former District Attorney-turned-homemaker (Henson) whose children are kidnapped when she invites a handsome stranger (Elba) into her home – after he feigns car trouble.
The pair have each seen success in their respective careers. Elba played Stringer Bell in the critically-acclaimed HBO series The Wire, and also appeared in the BBC series Luther. The British actor has also been featured in several popular movies – making appearances in both Thor and Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance.
Henson, on the other hand, has starred in several films, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Her performance earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
Will Packer and Lee Clay will co-produce the film, while Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lindsey Williams, Elba, and Rob Hardy will executive produce.
Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper is the project manager.
