“Kaboom” co-stars Haley Bennett and Thomas Dekker, along with Australian newcomer Bob Morley, will headline indie drama “The White City”, according to Deadline.
The Israel-set romantic drama is described as “an emotionally charged love triangle between three young artists that develops against the hot political climate of modern Tel Aviv.” Filming under co-directors Tanner King Barklow and Gil Kofman will begin in June.
Dekker and Bennett previously worked together on Gregg Araki’s “Kaboom”, which premiered at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. Dekker has gone on to television, most recently “The Secret Circle” on The CW, and has also wrapped filming on a string of indies including “Snap”, “Squatters” and “Transference.” Bennett just premiered “Deep Powder” at the Tribeca Film Festival” and recently wrapped shooting on Terrence Malick’s untitled next feature as well as college-set horror flick “Random.” While most Australia-imported Hollywood movie stars started on either Down Under soap “Neighbors” or “Home and Away”, Morley solidified his future American success by appearing on both. He has filmed futuristic CW pilot “The Hundred,” which is awaiting word on whether it’ll be picked up for this fall’s new season.
