Toby Hemingway (“Black Swan,” “In Time”) has joined and Josh Pence (“The Dark Knight Rises”) is in negotiations for one of the lead roles in the indie drama “The Silent Thief” for Jenkev Productions says Variety.
Hemingway plays a drifter who descends upon a family in crisis and suggests an odd solution: he’ll take their biological son’s place in the family unit. The situation unravels as his ingratiation tactics become pernicious.
Cody Longo will play a closeted athlete, while Pence is in talks to play his best friend and secret boyfriend. Scout Taylor Compton and Reid Ewing also star.
Jennifer Clary directs from a script she co-wrote with Kevin Haberer and Chris Sapp.
