Jackson will portray a senior Homeland Security investigator. Chinese actress Liu Yifei (“Once Upon a Time,” “The Forbidden Kingdom”) has also joined the cast.
Travis Fimmel has been attached since May to portray a street-wise American con man who teams with a young Chinese physicist (Liu) as they race against the clock to save the earth from a terrifying loss of gravity. Jackson’s character, believing the two are the cause of the inversions of gravity, chases them across two continents trying to stop further destruction.
