Diego Luna and Lukas Hass Join Whalberg In Contraband

The American remake of the Icelandic film Reykjavik-Rotterdam adds 2 more to the cast.  Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien) and Lukas Hass (Inception) join Mark Whalberg, Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi and Kate Beckinsale.

The story is about a reformed alcohol smuggler on the Iceland-Netherlands route who now works as a security guard and is experiencing financial trouble. To fix his financial trouble with the aid of a friend he gets back into the smuggling business.

Baltasar Kormakur who produced and starred in the original film will direct.

Reportedly this is Mark Whalberg’s next project. The film is set to hit theaters in March of 2012.

This sounds like a promising project.  Does the story interest you? Sound off.
