Maggie Grace joins Diaz and Cruise in Wichita
Posted by LiveFor on August 28, 2009
Maggie Grace (Lost, Taken) is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in Fox’s untitled Wichita project, a spy thriller directed by James Mangold.
The project centers on a lonely woman (Diaz) whose seemingly harmless blind date suddenly turns her life upside-down when a super spy (Cruise) takes her on a violent worldwide journey to protect a powerful battery that holds the key to an infinite power source….yes that is apparantly the Saturday morning cartoon plot they are using as hokey as it sounds…yes I did just use the word hokey. Let’s move on shall we.
Grace is playing Diaz’s sister, who is getting married, excited that Diaz will take the place of their late father and walk her down the aisle.
Grace has been busy since starring as Liam Neeson’s daughter in “Taken,” which has made more than $224 million worldwide.
She recently wrapped playing the female lead opposite Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker in Sony’s “The Experiment” and is shooting “Flying Lessons.” The indie is being exec produced by Mark Johnson.
