Maggie Grace joins Guy Pearce in Luc Besson's Lockout
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Maggie Grace will reteam with her TAKEN writer and producer Luc Besson in LOCKOUT. The sci-fi drama is about a man, played by the terrific Guy Pearce, falsely convicted of espionage conspiracy against the U.S. He is offered his freedom in exchange for rescuing the President’s daughter from a hostel prison in outer space. It sounds like it’s got a bit of an ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK vibe.
Maggie Grace played one of my least favorite characters in possibly my favorite television dramas of all time in LOST. But I will agree she’s not so hard on the eyes. On the other hand, Luc Besson has created one of my favorite films of all time in LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL. Besson has experience with a fun sci-fi pic in THE FIFTH ELEMENT, so I have high hopes for this next thriller.
