LOS ANGELES, Feb 11: Actor Joel Edgerton has been roped in to star in dark crime thriller “Stingray”.
Anthony Hayes will write and direct the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie revolves around a petty criminal (Bernthal) who, after accidentally killing the brother of a powerful racketeer (Edgerton) in his small town, must kill one of his own family in the next two days to pay off his debt.
Unified Pictures’ Keith Kjarval is producing the project along with John Schwarz.
“Tony Hayes has crafted an exquisitely well timed and intense rural thriller which explores the themes of nurture versus destruction with powerhouse artists Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton forming opposite sides of that equation.
“And with Unified partnering with Sierra Affinity, who have brought us classic films in this very same terrain, it is easy to see why we are all immensely excited,” said Unified’s ‘Kjarval. (PTI)
