Maggie Grace and Guy Pearce are set to star with Peter Stormare and Tom Hollander in Lock-Out. The film, labeled an action / sci-fi epic, has been set up at Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp production company.

According to The Wrap, the film takes place in a prison that’s orbiting fifty miles above Earth and houses five hundred of the world’s most dangerous prisoners who are kept asleep by sophisticated methods until they suddenly awaken, causing mayhem.

Lock-Out will be directed by Stephen St. Leger and James Mather, who co-wrote the script alongside Luc Besson.

Production on Lock-Out is expected to start towards the end of August in Belgrade.

Maggie Grace can be seen in the action-thriller Knight & Day, while Guy Pearce stars in the much buzzed about, forthcoming Australian drama, Animal Kingdom.
