One of our faces to watch in 2011 continues to line up a busy year ahead, as Variety reports Sebastian Stan has landed a role in thriller “Gone” starring Amanda Seyfried. Australian thesp Socratis Otto has also joined the cast.
Shooting begins in April under the direction of Heitor Dhalia from a script by Allison Burnett. Seyfried plays a kidnap victim who escapes and is convinced the serial killer who abducted her has abducted her newly missing sister. When the police refuse to believe her claims, she must take matters into her own hands to face down her kidnapper and save her sister. Jennifer Carpenter is also on board as a police officer and Emily Wickersham and Wes Bently are in the ensemble cast as well, in unnamed roles, though we would venture to guess Wickersham will be playing the younger sister and Bently the serial killer.
After gaining recognition on television shows like “Gossip Girl” and “Kings”, Stan made his foray into serious feature film acting with supporting roles in “Rachel Getting Married” and “Black Swan” and will next be seen in the pivotal role of Bucky Barnes in “Captain America: The First Avenger” opposite Chris Evans. He has completed filming on his first starring studio film, horror “The Apparition” opposite “Twilight” star Ashley Greene, and will next film a new version of “A View from the Bridge” opposite Mia Wasikowska.
