Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson set for Infinite with Mark Wahlberg
Deadline reports that Iceland native Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson will star opposite Mark Wahlberg in the action-thriller Infinite. Jóhannesson joins Dylan O’Brien, who boarded the project in late August.
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) and Kae Alexander (Ready Player One, Deep State).
Infinite is scheduled to hit theaters on August.
