Susan Sarandon

She's a stone cold fox. He's The Rock. THR reports Susan Sarandon has joined Dwayne Johnson for the new action-thriller Snitch. The film, which comes from stuntman turned writer and director Ric Roman Waugh (Felon, In The Shadows), is based on a 2004 episode of PBS' Frontline entitled "The Plea." The film will tell the true story of a suburban father (Johnson) who goes undercover to take down a high-level drug dealer in exchange for a reduction on his son's 30-year prison sentence. Sarandon will play an attorney working with Johnson's character who's looking for a big drug bust to further her career.

Waugh rewrote a draft by Justin Haythe (the upcoming Lone Ranger, Revolutionary Road, The Clearing), who penned the film when it was set-up back at New Line Cinema with Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress, High Crimes, Out of Time) attached. In the previous version of the script, her part was actually for a man but was altered specifically for the actress. Sarandon has quite a lot coming down the road with Cloud Atlas coming up, as well as I Hate You Dad, Gently Down the Stream, and Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep, and it's good to see an actress of her age and talent working in a wide variety of films.
