Cheadle, Pearce go undercover

11 July 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce have signed to topline Traitor, an espionage thriller from Overture Films. Cheadle also will produce along with Mandeville's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman as well as Jeff Silver.

Jeffrey Nachmanoff will direct from his own script, which is based on an original idea from Steve Martin.

The story centers on a CIA operative working undercover with a terrorist group who becomes a terrorist suspect. Cheadle is the undercover agent, while Pearce is an FBI agent investigating terrorist activities.

Hoberman and Lieberman had been developing the project since early 2002, when Martin approached the duo on the set of Bringing Down the House, which they were producing. Martin told them to meet him in his trailer because the actor had a thriller he wanted to pitch. Hoberman and Lieberman thought Martin was joking and didn't show up. Martin approached them the next day and asked why they didn't meet him.

When the producers finally heard the idea they seized it, setting it up at Walt Disney Pictures, where their company has a first-look deal. »
