MALIN AKERMAN TEAMS UP WITH ETHAN HAWKE

Sep 10, 2010

- ContentFilm has revealed today that Malin Akerman has joined the cast of THE NUMBERS STATION, starring opposite previously announced two-time Oscar ® nominee Ethan Hawke.  Kasper Barfoed (The Candidate) will direct.

 This fast-paced action thriller combines suspense, twists and turns and promises an explosive and mind-blowing climax. Akerman is currently co-starring with Katie Holmes in ‘The Romantics’ which opens in the US this week and in ‘The Bang Bang Club’ with Ryan Philippe and Taylor Kitsch which will premiere next week at the Toronto International Film Festival.  She also recently starred in hits such as ‘The Proposal’, ‘Watchmen’, and ‘Couples Retreat’ while Hawke was recently seen in “Daybreakers” and “Brooklyn’s Finest” and directed the critically acclaimed off-broadway play, “A Lie Of The Mind.” He is currently in production on “The Woman In The Fifth”.

 

The script is penned by F. Scott Frazier.  Principal photography is due to start early 2011.

 

More cast will be announced shortly.

 

Hawke plays Emerson, a disgraced black ops agent tasked with a dead-end job protecting Katherine played by Akerman, the code operator for a small CIA broadcast station in the middle of the Nevada desert. Emerson’s mission is simple:  protect Katherine.  Keep her safe and keep her secure.  When the station is under attack, their priority is to make it out alive…

 

The film is produced by Sean and Bryan Furst (Daybreakers, The Matador, The Girl in The Park, The Cooler) as well as Ethan Hawke under his banner Under The Influence Productions, with the company’s Ryan Hawke on board as executive producer.  Hawke is represented by CAA and attorney George Sheanshang.  Chris Cowles and Chris Fenton of H2F Entertainment will serve as executive producers on the film.

 Producers Sean and Bryan Furst said: "Malin has proven herself to be a terrific actor and is a great match for this role. We think her and Ethan are a very exciting combination

The film was directed by the Spierig Brothers and stars Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe.  The Fursts re-established their company after departing their executive roles at Overture Films, a studio they helped found as the company's first heads of production and acquisitions, respectively.  While at the studio, they played a key role in establishing Overture in the marketplace with active involvement on such projects as THE VISITOR, RIGHTEOUS KILL, TRAITOR, PANDORUM and THE CRAZIES.
