Dylan O’Brien joins Mark Wahlberg’s action-thriller Infinite
Variety brings word that Dylan O’Brien (American Assassin, The Maze Runner trilogy, Teen Wolf) will be starring opposite Mark Wahlberg in the action-thriller Infinite. No details have yet been released on who O’Brien will be playing.
Infinite is an action/thriller, based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers by D. Eric Maikranz, that tells the story of a group of men and women who are continuously reincarnated century-after-century to battle an evil madman bent on world destruction. The fate of the planet, it turns out, may reside with a schizophrenic man who will have to come to terms with the fact that his dreams are memories from his countless past lives.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura (the Transformers franchise) will be producing alongside Mark Vahradian and John Zaozirny of Bellevue Productions. Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer 2, The Magnificent Seven, Southpaw) will direct, with John Lee Hancock (The Founder) and Ian Shorr (Splinter) currently attached as screenwriters. Rafi Crohn will serve as executive producer.
The movie also stars Sophie Cookson (Gypsy, Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson (Atomic Blonde, Alpha), and Kae Alexander (Ready Player One, Deep State).
Infinite is scheduled to hit theaters on August
