Last year, Ben Kingsley‘s brain was put into the body of Ryan Reynolds, and the result was the terrible “Self/Less.” But if you need your annual quota of brain/body switching movies filled, then the good news is that “Criminal” is on the way, and it boasts a surprisingly deep cast.
Directed by Ariel Vroman (“The Iceman“), the movie stars Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Gal Gadot, Alice Eve, and Ryan Reynolds, in a high concept thriller that sounds like a little “Self/Less” meets “Face/Off.” Here’s the official synopsis:
The story of the right man in the wrong body. In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative’s memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous death-row inmate in hopes the he will complete the operative’s mission.
Originally slated to be released last summer, “Criminal” will now open on April 15th. Watch below.
