With production set to start in April, Jeremy Sumpter [pictured] is among those in talks to star in the young adult thriller.
Jeremy Sumpter, Phoebe Tonkin and Sebastian Koch are in talks to star in director Jim Gillespie’s Take Down, which Radiant Films International is shopping at the EFM.
Production is scheduled to start in April. Pinewood Shepperton’s Pinewood Pictures packaged and is producing the young adult thriller and Steve Christian serves as executive produce. Ed Elbert, Sarah Ryan Black and Stefan Brunner are the producers.
Alexander Ignon wrote the screenplay to the story about a colony of spoiled brats who fight back when armed invaders take over their remote boot camp.
“The qualities every director searches for in their actors are talent, charisma and commitment,” said Jim Gillespie. “I’ve been lucky enough to find all three in Jeremy and Phoebe. Mark my words, these are the stars of tomorrow.”
Radiant’s slate includes Sundance closing night screening Rudderless from William H Macy, Run, Boy, Run, Madame Bovary starring Mia Wasikowska and Harry And The Butler starring Samuel L Jackson and Michael Caine.
