Robert Pattinson is set to star, with Amy Adams, Robert Downey Jr., Forest Whitaker and Danielle Deadwyler in supporting roles.

According to Deadline, “Pattinson will play a serial killer who enlists a lobbyist (Adams) to change laws that will allow him to get away with murder more easily. Downey Jr’s role is a retired cop who won’t give up on the murders, and the killer tries to prevent him from dogging his trail now that he’s hung up his gun. The serial killer turns himself into a cause celebre, a Mr. Smith Goes To Washington figure shielding his true motives.”

Deadline also notes that “the script and that package is out to studios and streamers, and the intention is to get it into production by late summer or early fall.”

This is an exciting ensemble cast and sounds like an interesting premise. What do you think of McKay’s next project?
