Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Jamie Foxx are set to lead a star-studded cast in gritty action-thriller God Is A Bullet, according to Deadline.

Directed by The Notebook's Nick Cassavetes – and based on the 1999 novel of the same name by Boston Teran – the film centres on small-town cop Bob Hightower (played by Coster-Waldau), who comes home one evening to discover his ex-wife murdered, and his 14-year-old daughter kidnapped by a satanic cult.

In a desperate bid to find her, he quits his job, toughens up his image and infiltrates the gang in an attempt to hunt down the cult leader. His only help? The cult's only female victim escapee, Case Hardin (played by Maika Monroe).

Foxx is reported to be playing the pivotal supporting role of 'The Ferryman', while Andrew Dice Clay (Entourage) and Mad Men's January Jones also feature. Filming is scheduled to begin on May 24 in Mexico City.

"I am excited to get God Is A Bullet into production with my friend and producer/financer, Michael Mendelsohn," Cassavetes said.

"It's a magnificent, ultra-dark work that is somehow both intensely frightening and literate, inspired by true events, with the most amazing cast of actors."

Mendelsohn, Kim H Winther and Jim Steele are lined up to produce the picture. Sidney Kimmel, Chuck Pacheco, Paul Johansson, and Natalie Perrotta are all on board as executive producers.
