Idris Elba is set to play the villain in No Good Deed.
The movie will see him team up with Sam Miller while Taraji P Henson is also set to be on the cast list.
Elba has been moving between TV and movie of work of late, having picked up a Golden Globe for his role in hit show Luther earlier this year.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has been his first movie project of the year, his first film since Thor last summer.
But the actor will be back later this summer as he teams up with Michael Fassbander and Charlie Theron for Prometheus, which is directed by Ridley Scott.
And if that's not enough he is currently filming Pacific Rim, which is directed by Gulliermo De Toro.
Filming on No Good Deed is set to get underway in the U.S. next month.
