Jesse will play the ringleader, Dakota will play a wealthy young girl who funds the plan and An Education star Peter will play the technical mastermind behind the bomb.

Jesse replaces There Will Blood star Paul Dano, who was previously attached to the project and Dakota will take the part previously offered to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara.

The film has been written by Wendy And Lucy's Kelly Reichardt who will also direct.
