So which film has the honor of calling Jared Leto captain? Paramount has taken him on for their new crime thriller, 77. The story follows two police officers who team up to recover a kidnapped heiress. Set in 1974, the plot will be loaded up with plenty of corruption and conspiracies as well.

The other is David Matthews, who has worked on projects like Boardwalk Empire and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Leto is also going to be acting as producer on the project.
