Rising actor Blake Jenner (“Everybody Wants Some,” “Edge of Seventeen”) along with Barry Keoghan, Jared Abrahamson, Ann Dowd and Udo Kier, have joined the cast of Bart Layton’s heist thriller “American Animals” for Film4 and AI Film.
Layton’s first film since his acclaimed documentary “The Imposter,” this marks his first narrative feature film. The true story tale follows four young men who mistook their lives for a movie and attempted one of the most audacious heists in U.S. history.
Evan Peters also stars in the film which Layton also wrote. Katherine Butler, Dimitri Doganis, Derrin Schlesinger and Mary Jane Skalski will produce and filming begins later this year in the United States.
