The thriller Transit is certainly filling up its cast roster fast, with THR logging two stories in quick succession (which you can find here and here) about is set to star in the movie. Antonio Negret is directing the drama about a band of thieves on the run from a bank robbery and the suburban family they come across during their escape. When the criminals stash their stolen money in the family’s SUV at a rest stop, the road trippers unwittingly draw the murderous band of outlaws on their trail.
Elisabeth Rohm (Heroes, Law & Order) is set to play the mother of the family, with Jim Caviezel as the protective father. Harold Perrineau and Diora Baird will be members of the bank robbing crew, while James Frain has also been cast in an as yet unspecified role.
It’s good news for Jim Caviezel, who looked like he was about to hit the big time following The Passion Of The Christ, but if anything, it’s harmed his career more than helped it, as he became so associated with the role. Perhaps this will help people think of him as something more than getting nailed to a cross.
