ON

Ethan Hawke is set to topline the indie drama Staten Island, with James DeMonaco making his directorial debut, reports Production Weekly.

DeMonaco’s script intersects the storylines of three of the borough residents and struggles of getting ahead. DeMonaco adapted the 2005 remake of John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 that starred Hawke.

Filming is scheduled to begin late April in New York.
