Jake Gyllenhaal, “Baby Driver” star Ansel Elgort, and singer and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” actress Zendaya have been cast in the upcoming crime thriller “Finest Kind” at Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment, 30WEST and STXinternational.
Brian Helgeland (“A Knight’s Tale”) is penning and directing the film about two brothers (Gyllenhaal and Elgort) who strike a dangerous deal with a crime syndicate that draws them into the Boston underworld. As pressures mount, sacrifices must be made and bonds are put to the test.
Producer Gary Foster says in a statement: “Brian and I have dreamed about making this film together for a long time. Brian’s directorial vision and powerful screenplay which draws on his experiences growing up in the tough town of New Bedfrod, Mass., has attracted a stellar cast lead by Jake, Ansel and Zendaya. I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
Russ Krasnoff will also produce. No production schedule has been given.
