Last night, Viola Davis taught us “How to Get Away with Murder” but in her new film, Blackhat, the Oscar-nominated actress is teaching us how to catch a cyber-pirate.
Set within the world of global cybercrime, Legendary’s Blackhat follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.
The thriller is directed and produced by Michael Mann and stars Davis alongside Chris Hemsworth, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom. It is also written by Morgan Davis Foehl and Mann.
Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni produced alongside Mann, while Alex Garcia and Eric McLeod serve as the film’s executive producers. Blackhat arrives in theaters January 16, 2015.
