Joshua Jackson (Fringe) is set to star alongside Bruce Willis and Rebecca Hall in director Stephen Frears’ LAY THE FAVORITE. Based on the memoir by Beth Raymer, the D.V. DeVincentis-scripted drama follows the true story of the cocktail waitress who fell into the Las Vegas underbelly of professional gambling and became a major player in the world of sports betting.
Randall Emmet will produce alongside DeVincentis, Anthony Bregman and Paul Trijbits, with James Skotchdopole and Peter Gethers serving as exec producers.
Jackson is repped by CAA.
