We haven't seen much of Dylan O'Brien ever since the Maze Runner franchise... so to see him landing so many new roles has us screaming with excitement.
Such a busy man.
Deadline reports that he has been cast in a thriller called The Education of Fredrick Fitzell.
Dyl will star alongside Independence Day: Resurgence‘s Maika Monroe and play the tole of Fred, “a man who begins to unravel a long hidden mystery about a missing girl, a drug called Mercury, and a terrifying creature that has followed him into adulthood.”
According to a statement, he is “not a detective, a secret agent or a philosopher; he’s a normal guy approaching 30 and going through an existential crisis as he finds himself on the precipice of full-blown adulthood.”
The movie is written and directed by Christopher MacBride and produced by Lee Kim.
“The script is unlike anything I’ve read,” the producer said. “Chris has crafted a unique, brilliant story — one that transcends genre and provides a surreal snapshot of a man on the brink of collapse. It’s a testament to his writing, vision and characters that we have such an amazing cast lined up. I’m excited to help bring this to life.”
