Garrett Hedlund Set to Star in William Monaghan’s ‘Mojave’


Garrett Hedlund is set to join William Monaghan’s ‘Mojave’.

Garrett Hedlund

Oscar-winning writer William Monaghan (The Departed) is moving forward with his second feature as a director with the thriller Mojave, although the cast is shuffling around as TRON: Legacy‘s Garrett Hedlund is replacing the exceedingly busy Australian actor Jason Clarke, who just appeared in last week’s blockbuster, Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby.

Hedlund will star opposite the equally prolific Oscar Isaac, playing a suicidal artist who escapes into the desert after an existential crisis, only to encounter a “doppelganger-like antagonist in the form of a brilliant, homicidal drifter.” The latter would be played by Isaac and we’re not sure if those two actors really look that much alike but maybe they’re closer in size if nothing else.
