Gary Oldman is in final negotiations to play the antogonist in Albert Hughes' thriller "Motor City," released by Warner Brothers' Pictures.
Dominic Cooper ("Captain America") and Amber Heard ("Drive Angry") star in the film about a small time hood who is framed and sent to prison, only to exact revenge years later to get back the woman he loves.
Oldman plays a kingpin who has his hooks into the woman. Oldman previously worked with Hughes on "The Book of Eli".
Filming begins this April in Berlin (there are currently no plans for the film to be shot in Detroit).
