Zachary Levi is taking on a new role.

The Shazam! star will join co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim and Shailene Woodley in the upcoming drama Prisoner 760, a true-life legal drama, THR reported on Friday (December 27).

The Kevin Macdonald-directed movie is being shot in South Africa, and is described as “a fight for survival against impossible odds, 760 tells the true tale of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a man who was captured by the U.S. government and held for years without charge or trial. Slahi finds unlikely allies in defense attorneys Nancy Hollander and her associate Teri Duncan, being played by Foster and Woodley, respectively, who desperately pursue justice. They are aided by a military prosecutor named Lt. Stuart Couch (Cumberbatch).”

Zachary will play “an old friend of the prosecutor’s, a federal agent by the name of Neil Buckland.”
