Boyd Holbrook’s star is certainly rising. He’s popped up in The Host and Behind The Candelabra, and will soon be seen in The Skeleton Twins, Terrence Malick’s new movie, Out Of The Furnace and A Walk Among The Tombstones.
Now he’s got two more film lined up, as TheWrap reports he’ll be part of Jane Got A Gun and Little Accidents.
The rather troubled Jane Got A Gun (which has seen numerous cast and director changes just as production was beginning). Natalie Portman stars as the title character, whose husband (Noah Emmerich) comes home riddled with bullet wounds. When the band of outlaws of shot him comes to Jane’s farm to finish the job, she seeks help from a former lover (Joel Edgerton) to ward off these gunmen. Ewan McGregor is playing the leader of the bad guys, with Holbrook as his younger brother.
Little Accidents meanwhile is based on Sara Colangelo’s award-winning 2010 short of the same name. Boyd will be the sole survivor of a mine accident that kills 12 men in a small town. Elizabeth Banks is set to play a woman whose son goes missing during the tragedy and turns to Holbrook for support.
