We Got This Covered can exclusively report today that Golden Globe-nominated actor Tom Sizemore (Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down) has joined the cast of The Martyr Maker, an upcoming political thriller from Kamal Ahmed.
Not much is known about the project just yet, but Sizemore will co-star alongside Adeel Ahmed (who’s had guest spots on CBS’ Elementary and NBC’s Deception), who plays Zahid, “an American born Muslim who, after struggling with his Islamic roots, explores different aspects of the religion, leading to a deadly calling.”
Sizemore, meanwhile, will play the head of the CIA, though it’s unclear how the two characters will cross paths at this point. Still, it’s an intriguing premise and we’re eager to see how the film develops.
Set to shoot in the spring, there’s no release date just yet for The Martyr Maker, but with its two leading men now locked in, you can expect the wheels to start moving on this one rather quickly. And, as always, we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
