Armie Hammer's all-American appeal has lent itself to plenty of princely roles, from media royalty the Winklevii to Snow White's dashing hero, but it looks like this good boy is about to go bad.
Deadline reports that Hammer is set to star alongside "I Am Number Four" star Teresa Palmer in crime thriller "Cut Bank," scheduled to start production this fall. The film, penned by "Prime Suspect" writer Roberto Patino, will mark the feature directorial debut for Matt Shakman, who honed his skills on small-screen hits, including "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Six Feet Under" and "Mad Men."
The script, which made the 2009 Black List, tells the story of former football hero-turned-mechanic Dwayne McLaren, whose desperation to leave his one horse hometown of Cut Bank, MT, puts into motion a string of events that leave both his life and his town irreparably altered.
The movie, which co-stars Sir Ben Kingsley, Michael Sheen and John Malkovich, will be produced by Micky Barold, Dan Cohen, and Ed Zwick, with Laura Rister of Untitled Entertainment serving as executive producer.
