Zachary Levi, from the DC movie Shazam, has been cast in the movie Prisoner 760. He will be joining Benedict Cumberbatch, Jodie Foster, Shailene Woodley and Tahar Rahim in the true-life legal drama movie, being directed by Kevin Macdonald.
Prisoner 760 tells the story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a man who was captured by the US government and held for years without charge or trial. Defense attorneys Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley), become unlikely allies to Slahi as they desperately pursue justice. They are aided by a military prosecutor by the name of Lt. Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch).
Zachary Levi is set to play an old friend of the prosecutor’s, a federal agent by the name of Neil Buckland.
The movie, which is being filmed in South Africa is an adaptation of New York Times best-selling memoir by Mohamedou Ould Slahi entitled, Guantánamo Diary, which Slahi wrote while he was still imprisoned. The script for the film was written by Michael Bronner, who has worked with Paul Greengrass on the filmmaker’s true-life movies United 93, Green Zone and Captain Phillips.
