Pattinson will essay the role of a serial killer who enlists a lobbyist (Adams) to change laws that will allow him to get away with murder more easily.
Downey Jr will play a retired cop who won’t give up on the murders, and the killer tries to prevent him from dogging his trail now that he’s hung up his gun.
The project will be produced by McKay’s Hyperobject Industries and Kevin Messick.
Pattinson is currently awaiting the release of Mickey 17, the latest movie from multiple Oscar-winning filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho.
Downey Jr will be next seen in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. He is also in talks to star in the remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.
