Transit will be directed by relative novice Antonio Negret and also stars Elizabeth Rohm (Angel, Heroes), Harold Perrineau (The Matrix Reloaded, Romeo + Juliet) and Diora Baird. The screenplay by Michael Gilvary (Dust Devil, The Walking Wounded) revolves around a team of robbers who, fleeing the scene of their crime, come across a suburban family travelling on holiday. They promptly stash their haul in the family’s SUV at a rest stop, drawing the family into their (presumably) increasingly dangerous and desperate escape plans.
Caviezel will play the father of the family unwittingly caught up with the robbers and James Frain (24, Fringe, The Tudors) has also been cast. THR do not say in what role, however Comingsoon report that he and Perrineau will be members of the gang of robbers, with Rohm as Caviezel’s wife.
