Vera Farmiga has joined the cast of Universal's Safe House. She will star opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in the Daniel Espinosa-directed drama. The film follows a young agent (Reynolds) assigned to escort a dangerous criminal to safety after they are attacked at a safe house. Farmiga will play a CIA operative supervising Reynolds' character. The cast also includes Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Robert Patrick and Liam Cunningham. Safe House is being produced by Scott Stuber and Intrepid Pictures' Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans are exec producers.
Farmiga stars currently in Source Code and directed her first film called Higher Ground, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. I really liked her in The Departed and Up in the Air. She is a great actress and a great addition to the casting of the film.
