Guy Pearce and Monica Bellucci have been cast in the thriller film Memory. The duo will join Liam Neeson, who is set to lead the film, with Harold Torres, Taj Atwal, and Ray Fearon rounding out the cast.
Memory is based on the book De Zaak Alzheimer by Jef Geeraerts and the Belgian crime drama The Memory of a Killer, directed by Erik Van Looy.
Memory follows Alex Lewis (Neeson), an expert assassin with a reputation for discreet precision. When Alex refuses to complete a job for a dangerous criminal organization, he becomes a target and must go on the hunt for those who want him dead. Veteran FBI agents Vincent Serra (Pearce), Linda Amistead (Atwal), and Mexican intelligence liaison Hugo Marquez (Torres) are brought in to investigate the trail of bodies, leading them closer to Alex, but also drawing the ire of local tech mogul Davana Sealman (Bellucci). With the crime syndicate and FBI in hot pursuit, Alex has the skills to stay ahead, except for one thing – he is struggling with severe memory loss, affecting his every move. As details blur and enemies close in, Alex must question his every action, and who he can ultimately trust.
