Actors Brian Cox and Jodie Turner-Smith are all set to headline an upcoming political thriller titled The Independent.
The film has a Black List script penned by Evan Parter and will be helmed by Emmy-nominated director Amy Rice. The story is set in the final weeks of the most consequential presidential election in history and follows an idealistic young journalist (Turner-Smith) who teams up with her idol (Cox) to uncover a conspiracy that places the fate of the election, and the country, in their hands.
The Independent will be produced by Ryan Cunningham of Anonymous Content along with Sam Bisbee of Park Pictures, Thea Dunlap, Caddy Vanasirikul of The Exchange and Parter.
Meanwhile, Cox is currently awaiting the third season of the hit HBO series Succession, in which he plays the role of Logan Roy. Turner-Smith most recently starred with Michael B Jordan in Amazon's Without Remorse and in the British TV drama series Anne Boleyn.
