John Goodman joins The Gambler

John Goodman has been cast in the remake of The Gambler.

The Inside Llewyn Davis actor will play a loan shark in the new version of the 1974 film, reported The Wrap.

He joins Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange and Brie Larson in the drama.

Mark will portray a college professor whose gambling addiction takes over his life, with his debts leading to some unwanted new friends. The role was played by James Caan in the original film.

Two-time Oscar-winning actress Jessica will play his rich and ostentatious mother.

The Gambler is being directed by Rupert Wyatt.
