Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("Watchmen," "P.S. I Love You") has joined the cast of Ami Canaan Mann's dark murder mystery thriller "The Fields."

According to Bloody Disgusting: Jeffrey Dean Morgan will star alongside Sam Worthington in the murder mystery "Texas Killing Fields," with Michael Mann producing through his Forward Pass shingle along with Michael Jaffe.

Based on a true story, the film follows a pair of cops--one from Texas (Worthington) the other from New York (Morgan)--investigating a string of nearly 60 unsolved murders over two decades amid the oil refineries and industrial wastelands of in the south-east Gulf Coast region of Texas.

Donald F. Ferrarone penned the script, with Michael Mann and Michael Jaffe will producing.

Jeffery Dean Morgan sure likes to keep himself busy. After starring as the Comedian in “Watchmen” last year, he has “The Losers” and “Red Dawn” still to come, and now he also will join “The Fields.” Morgan has the gruff look and the right persona to play the New York cop, and he and Worthington should have good chemistry with one another.

Filming kicks off in April in Louisiana
