Jack O'Connell joins Tim Roth, Talulah Riley and Peter Mullan in The Liability, a darkly comic thriller.
He plays Adam, a young guy who only wants to be a hitman, who is brought together by a female vigilante with an old hitman who only wants to retire.
Written by John Wrathall, the film will be directed by exciting Brit newcomer Craig Viveiros, who made his debut feature with Ghosted earlier this year, and produced by Corona Pictures.
Jack has recently completed filming on Private Peaceful.
Shooting on Liability is due to begin on Nov 21 in Northumberland, UK.
