While some actors have done well out of being in the Twilight franchise (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Anna Kendrick), for many it hasn’t been quite the leap into the a-list it might have seemed like it was going to be. That’s true of Jackson Rathbone, whose role as Jasper Hale hasn’t really equated to major stardom.
The same is true of Diego Boneta, who may have thought the world would be at his feet after scoring the lead role in Rock Of Ages, but we haven’t heard much from him since. Now Rathbone and Boneta are teaming up for the thriller The Dead Men, according to THR.
The movie is about ‘an American running from his past who is brought into a group of young underground radicals called The Dead Men, only to discover a centuries-old spiritual battle.’
Sounds like it’ll be dealing with the supernatural then, but there’s no info on who Rathbone or Boneta will play. Kirk Sullivan, a longtime assistant to mega-producer Joel Silver, will be making his directorial debut with the film, with Andrew Poston on scripting duties.
