Jim Caviezel is the latest actor to join the cast of Transit, the After Dark Films indie thriller from Colombian director Antonio Negret (Seconds Apart, Hacia la Oscuridad). Caviezel, who has starred in The Passion of the Christ and Frequency, joins Elizabeth Rohm, Diora Baird, Harold Perrineau, and James Frain.
The plot, from screenwriter Michael Gilvary (According to Greta), revolves around a group of thieves on the run after a bank robbery who come across a suburban family on their way to a camping trip. When the criminals hide their stolen money in the family’s SUV at a rest stop, the protective father (Caviezel) and his family unwittingly make themselves the target of the murderous band of outlaws when they drive off with the cash.
Courtney Solomon is set to produce, and Hollywood heavyweight Joel Silver will executive produce.
