The Manuscript, a new thriller from director John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines) has just landed Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman as the film's star.
The cat and mouse-style thriller was written by Louis Rosenberg and Joe Rosenbaum. It centers on a jailed genius convict (Freeman), who leads an book editor, through clues in his memoir, to the $20 million in missing diamonds he stole years earlier. As the junior editor gets closer to finding out the truth about the mystery, he falls into a greater criminal ploy that leaves his life in danger.
It's always good to see Freeman land a good meaty movie role. This sounds like it will be a great project for him to be a part of. The Manuscript is scheduled to begin shooting this October.
