Jamie Foxx Finds Himself a New "Kingdom"

by | December 2, 2005 | Comments

Word from The Hollywood Reporter is that Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx has signed to head up "The Kingdom," a political thriller to be directed by Peter "The Rundown" Berg.

"Jamie Foxx has signed to star in Universal Pictures’ "The Kingdom," a political thriller being directed by Peter Berg. Scott Stuber also is coming on board the project as a producer, joining Michael Mann, who is producing via his Forward Pass banner.

Based on an original idea by Berg and Mann, the story centers on Foxx’s character, who is leading an elite team of counter-terrorism investigators trying to find those responsible for a deadly bombing attack on American workers the Middle East. Once inside the previously off-limits desert kingdom, the Americans engage a local police officer to help in their investigation but end up frustrated by bureaucracy and tradition, and find their lives threatened."
