Ray Liotta cast in "The Field"
Ray Liotta will star in 'The Field'.
The 'Goodfellas' actor, 59, will play an arms dealer who is caught in the middle of the erupting war and director Rohit Karn Batra is thrilled to have him on board, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Batra said: ''Being an avid fan, it's an honour to have Ray sign on to play such a pivotal role, a character I wrote specifically for him.''
Guy Louthan and Jai Khanna of Brillstein Entertainment Partners are producing while Atul Kasbekar and Adam W. Rosen will executive produce.
Filming for the forthcoming flick is expected to begin in India later this year.
Khanna added: ''Ray has a career that is unequalled for its remarkable variety. We're thrilled to have him on board.
''He has never worked in India, and that was his motivation... here is a veteran actor keen to play this role and shoot in the country, and support a young director.''
The Field's cast also includes Ronit Roy, Neeraj Kabi, Vineet Singh and actress Radhika Apte.
Liotta is set to hit the big screen in this year's 'Stretch', 'The Identical', 'Revenge of the Green Dragons', 'Kill the Messenger', 'Flock of Dudes' and 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'.
