Eric Bana (The Time Traveler’s Wife), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy) and Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) are in talks to star in KIN. Per Variety, the crime thriller follows “two desperate sibling fugitives (Bana and Wilde) on the run who subsequently collide with the holiday homecoming of a troubled ex-boxer (Hunnam).” Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) will direct from a script by Zach Dean; filming begins this March in Canada.
I really like this cast (assuming they sign on). I’ve been 30% more interested in Bana’s career since Funny People. Hunnam pulled a reverse Bana, now officially beyond being known as “the charming Brit on Undeclared.” And Wilde has been the most interesting actor on House not named Hugh Laurie for a few seasons now, not to mention the go-to twentysomething for the sci-fi films of the next couple years: Tron: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens, Now. Let’s do this, Oscar winner Stefan Ruzowitzky.
