Lukas Haas has boarded the cast of the Universal thriller "Contraband."
According to Variety, the cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster and Caleb Landry Jones.
The film is a remake of the Oskar Jonasson-directed Icelandic thriller "Reykjavik-Rotterdam."
Baltasar Kormakur, who co-wrote, produced and starred in the original, is directing the remake.
Wahlberg, Kormakur, Stephen Levinson, and Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing.
Aaron Guzikowski wrote the script, which follows an ex-freight ship worker (Wahlberg), fired for smuggling, who barely makes ends meet as a security guard until his best friend persuades him to sign on for one last illegal job.
Shooting is underway in New Orleans.
Universal will release the film on March 16, 2012.
Haas will be seen in Warner's upcoming "Red Riding Hood."
