*Cuba Gooding, Jr. has booked a role in the film “Gridlocked,” an action thriller from director Allan Ungar.

The 46-year-old actor will play a former SWAT team leader in the action thriller who is shadowed by an obnoxious movie star while researching a role. However, the unlikely pair is forced to join forces when a team of mercenaries attack a training facility. The duo must organize its surviving members, while fighting for their own lives.

Ungar will direct from an original screenplay he wrote with Rob Robol, while Bruno Marino, Geoff Hart and Cody Hackman produce.

Filming for “Gridlocked” will kick off this spring.
