Simon Pegg will play a mercurial assassin, hired by her wealthy husband (Callan Mulvey), Sullivan Stapleton plays a gambling addict that attempts to pay off his debts through a risky life insurance scam, whilst Teresa Palmer plays a small town Lady Macbeth who masterminds the scheme. Luke Hemsworth will also star as Braga's love interest, a local surfer who hopes to rescue the young woman from Pegg's telescopic sights.
