A brand new thriller starring Sophie Turner and Dane DeHaan is pressing ahead: more details on it here.
Dane DeHaan is getting cast in all kinds of interesting projects lately, from Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer project to the intriguing biopic of Senator Joe McCarthy, entitled McCarthy. It’s now been announced that he’ll be starring opposite the talented Sophie Turner in Wardriver, which goes on sale at this week’s virtual European Film Market. Turner is also attached to a couple of interesting-looking upcoming projects, including Netflix’s Strangers alongside Maya Hawke.
Over the past few years, both actors have found themselves having to recover from leading big-budget action films that noticeably underperformed, DeHaan in the underrated Valerian And The City of a Thousand Planets, and Turner in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. However, they’ve both been carving out success in smaller roles since, including working together on the US TV drama, The Staircase.
Wardriver is written and directed by Daniel Casey, who wrote Fast & Furious 9, and follows a brilliant, tech-savvy thief called Cole (DeHaan) who has a highly specialised skillset and uses it to commit robberies from his laptop. When Oscar, a criminal with a dangerous past, discovers Cole’s unique talents, he forces him to hack into the bank account of the young, seemingly wealthy Sarah (Turner) and empty it of nearly a million dollars. Cole soon discovers that a powerful, mob-connected lawyer has been using Sarah to hide his money. Seeking to bail her out of danger, Cole initiates a plan to replace the stolen money and begins to fall for Sarah. Ignoring warning signs that something greater is amiss, Cole soon finds himself pulled into an elaborate web of lies, deceit and betrayal.
