Jack Quaid of “The Boys” fame has been cast in an upcoming film created by the same team behind the successful horror flick “Barbarian” released last year.
The screenplay for the movie has been penned by Drew Hancock, who will also be making his directorial debut with this project. Although the specific details of the plot are being kept under tight wraps, anticipation is building.
Joining the production team are Zach Creeger, the talented writer and director of “Barbarian,” as well as Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz from BoulderLight Pictures, who will be serving as producers.
Earlier this year, New Line acquired the rights to the film titled “Companion” after a fiercely competitive auction. Initially, Cregger was set to direct, but he made the decision to shift his focus towards his own script, called “Weapons.”
In another exciting venture, Jack, the son of Hollywood stars Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan, has secured a place in the all-star cast of Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film, “Oppenheimer.”
The movie centers around the exceptional performance of Cillian Murphy, who takes on the title role of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the brilliant scientist responsible for leading the Manhattan Project, which ultimately resulted in the development of the atomic bomb.
Alongside Murphy, the film features an impressive ensemble cast including Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Josh Hartnett, and Jack Quaid. Quaid himself expressed his profound gratitude for the “incredible experience” of being part of this exceptional cinematic endeavor.
Quaid fondly recalled his time on set, where he had the privilege of witnessing true masters of the craft, such as director Christopher Nolan, and the extraordinary cast, showcasing their unparalleled talents. He considers himself extremely fortunate to have absorbed their expertise and hopes to learn from their exceptional skills.
The 31-year-old recalled: “Shooting that was such an incredible experience. Like, I’m like a blip in that movie, but it was just so incredible to sit there and watch true masters do what they do.
“Like, to watch Chris work, watch the cast work, like, it’s such a murderer’s row of incredible actors that I just got to see do their thing, and feel so lucky that I got to just take that in and hopefully learn from it.
“I don’t know. I still don’t believe that I’m in that movie, either.”
