OJ Simpson”, have joined the cast surrounding Jodie Foster in Drew Pearce’s highly anticipated directorial debut “Hotel Artemis”. Others include Emmy Award Nominee Zachary Quinto, Jenny Slate, Dave Bautista, Emmy Award Winner Sterling K. Brown, Charlie Day, Sofia Boutella, and Academy Award Nominee Jeff Goldblum.
Mark Platt, Golden Globe and Academy Award Winner (“La La Land” , “Grease: Live”) and Adam Siegel will also be working alongside the Ink Factor’s Stephen and Simon Cornwell to produce the original script by Drew Pearce, known for writing “Iron Man 3” and “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation”.
