Morgan Freeman to star in cat-and-mouse thriller The Manuscript

According to Screen Daily, Morgan Freeman has joined the cast of The Manuscript, a high-concept cat-and-mouse thriller from director John Moore (A Good Day to Die Hard, Behind Enemy Lines).

Based on a script by Louis Rosenberg and Joe Rosenbaum, The Manuscript follows “an imprisoned genius (Freeman) who uses clues in the manuscript of his upcoming memoir to guide a junior book editor to a missing $20m diamond stash he stole years earlier. As the ambitious youngster gets closer to the truth, he becomes ensnared in a criminal plot that places his life in danger.”

The film is being produced by Mike Witherill (John Wick) and Mark Williams (The Accountant) and is being introduced to potential buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival by Highland Film Group, who are also shopping the Margot Robbie thriller Terminal and drama Three Christs starring Richard Gere and Peter Dinklage.
