Boyd Holbrook is definiely looking like one to watch. The young actor, who this year joined the cast of a big budget sci-fi flick as well as an indie coming-of-age story, is attached to headline new drama “Little Accidents“, reports Variety.
Based on a short film by Sarah Colangelo which premiered at Sundance 2010, it is set in a small American mining town left devastated after a tragic accident. The story “explores tragedy and redemption through the intersecting lives of three people – the lone survivor (Holbrook), a mourning mother and 14 year-old boy with a secret of his own”.
Colangelo is set to script and direct the feature length film.
After joining the cast of Andrew Niccol‘s hotly-anticipated adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi book “The Host“, Holbrook then went on to take over from Anton Yelchin in Naomi Foner‘s “Very Good Girls“, alongside Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen. The actor started his Hollywood career in Oscar-nominated film “Milk” and has worked with a number of high profile directors, including Steven Soderbergh and Terrence Malick.
