Luke Evans Joins “State Like Sleep”

Welsh thesp Luke Evans (“Dracula Untold,” “High Rise”) will star opposite Michael Shannon and Ben Foster in the indie drama “State Like Sleep” which Meredith Danluck will pen and direct.

Evans will play the sleazy owner and operator behind the mysterious high class gentleman’s club Lebellfleur which a woman thinks holds the answers to her husband’s death. The story deals with our basic need for human connection and love.

Eddie Vaisman will produce and shooting kicks off next week in Toronto. Evans next appears in “The Girl on the Train” later this year and as Gaston in Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” in early 2017.
