Dave Bautista joins Sci-Fi Thriller Hotel Artemis
The Ink Factory and Lionsgate have announced today that Dave Bautista (SPECTRE, Guardians of the Galaxy) is set to join Academy Award winner Jodie Foster (The Silence of the Lambs, The Accused) in the upcoming film Hotel Artemis. The feature marks the directorial debut of Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3).
Academy Award nominee Marc Platt (La La Land, Drive, Wanted) will produce alongside Adam Siegel (Drive, 2 Guns), and The Ink Factory’s Simon Cornwell and Stephen Cornwell (The Night Manager, A Most Wanted Man).
Penned by Pearce and set in the near future, Hotel Artemis follows a nurse (Foster) who runs an underground hospital for Los Angeles’ most sinister criminals, and finds that one of her patients is actually there to assassinate another.
“Mr. Bautista is a force to be reckoned with — a powerful presence who’s equal parts strength and soulfulness,” Pearce said. “I’m a true fan, and it’s a privilege to have him in the world of Hotel Artemis.”
Bautista can next be seen this May in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and most recently starred alongside Brittany Snow in Bushwick, which premiered at Sundance. In addition, he can be seen in the upcoming films Blade Runner 2049, opposite Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling and in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War.
