Highland Film Group has announced that Golden Globe nominee Lily Collins (“Les Misérables,” To the Bone, Rules Don’t Apply, Okja) will join Simon Pegg (Mission Impossible, Star Trek, The Cornetto Trilogy) in the high-stakes thriller Inheritance, with British helmer Vaughn Stein directing, fresh off his recent work with Pegg and Margot Robbie in his noir thriller Terminal. Matthew Kennedy penned script, and Richard B. Lewis (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Backdraft, August Rush) is producing through his Southpaw Entertainment banner alongside David Wulf (upcoming The Night Clerk). UTA and Highland Film Group are co-repping the US rights with Highland Film Group handling foreign sales, which will continue in Berlin at the EFM this week.

Inheritance explores what happens when the patriarch of a wealthy and powerful family suddenly passes away, leaving his wife and daughter with a shocking secret inheritance that threatens to unravel and destroy their lives.

Showtime’s ‘BILLIONS’ Season 3 Casting Call for a Restaurant Scene

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming on December 4th in New York City.

About Billions:

Wealth, influence, and corruption collide in this drama set in New York. Shrewd U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades is embroiled in a high-stakes game of predator vs. prey with Bobby Axelrod, an ambitious hedge-fund king. To date, Rhoades has never lost an insider trading case — he’s 81-0 — but when criminal evidence turns up against Axelrod, he proceeds cautiously in building the case against Axelrod, who employs Rhoades’ wife, psychiatrist Wendy, as a performance coach for his company. Wendy, who has been in her position longer than Chuck has been in his, refuses to give up her career for her husband’s legal crusade against Axelrod. Both men use their intelligence, power, and influence to outmaneuver the other in this battle over billions. The high-profile cast is led by Emmy winners Paul Giamatti (“John Adams”) and Damian Lewis (“Homeland”) as Chuck Rhoades and Bobby Axelrod, respectively.
