Alex Wolff (Hereditary) is set to join John Malkovich in thriller The Line.
The Line is being described as a coming-of-age thriller at a University that encapsulates both the wild excitement of being young, and the dangers of living without fear of consequences.
Wolff released the following statement:
“The Line will be a profoundly nuanced portrait of a young man being sucked into this seemingly glamorous, rambunctious and familial unit. Its heartbreak echoes a larger issue with men and their painful need for approval, love, and nurture, letting you peer in on what seems like a utopia-like world for a young man, and how quickly one horrible accident can turn that world into a nightmare.”
John Malkovich, Scoot McNairy (Argo, Killing Them Softly), Jessica Barden (The Lobster), and Lewis Pullman (Bad Times at the El Royale) round out the cast. Ethan Berger and Alex Russek penned the script which Berger will direct, marking his narrative feature debut.
